Halstead-Reitan Neuropsychological Test Battery:

Administration and Interpretation

 

August 18 - 20, 2014

Plano, Texas

 


 

This seminar will provide participants with information regarding the administration, validation, and interpretation of the Halstead-Reitan Neuropsychological Test Battery.  This seminar is a prerequisite for our Advanced seminars.

 

Cases for presentations are selected from The Neuropsychology Center files to illustrate the HRB interpretation methodology. Neurological conditions to be illustrated through case examples will include head injury, stroke, and Alzheimer's Disease.

 

Registration is open to psychologists, psychology graduate students, and psychology interns. No previous knowledge or experience with the HRB is necessary. However, attendees should be familiar with psychological testing standards and procedures.  This is not an introduction to neuropsychology, and attendance at this seminar is not sufficient to practice neuropsychology without additional education, training, and experience.
