Using Psychometric Measures in Therapy

Join us January 16, 2014 for a free presentation about the fascinating world of assessments in clinical practice. This enlightening event will be led by Dr. Nicole Peak, core faculty member at University of the Rockies. There has been a considerable investment in the development of psychometric measures for use in diagnosing, monitoring care, and measuring change in psychiatric and psychological interventions. These measures are most widely used in research studies, with minimal use in clinical practice. This presentation will examine some of the reasons for these discrepancies as well as the consequences resulting from the discordance between research and clinical practice. Lastly, this presentation will examine the proposition for a more realistic use of psychometric measures.
