Neuropsychological Patterns in Neurological Disorders – Part I
This small-group advanced seminar, the first of a two-part series, will examine neuropsychological patterns of test results (using the Halstead-Reitan Neuropsychological Test Battery) seen in various neurological disorders and conditions. Conditions to be illustrated through case examples will include head injury, stroke, cerebral tumors, and Alzheimer's disease. Each case will be explored systematically through a process of test interpretation, integration of clinical history and neurological findings, differential diagnosis, and determination of educational, treatment or rehabilitation needs.
All attendees must have previously completed a workshop from The Neuropsychology Center or Reitan Neuropsychology Labs. By limiting enrollment to participants with this level of experience, we expect to be able to offer intensive, advanced training with direct interaction between the instructors and participants.
ACTIVE participation is expected of all attendees!
Participants in this seminar can expect to improve their ability to recognize patterns in neuropsychological test results associated with various neurological conditions, including cerebral tumors, stroke, traumatic brain injury, and Alzheimer’s Disease. They can expect to learn about the incidence, definition, neurological diagnostic criteria and course for each of these conditions. They will also improve their understanding of the implications of various test patterns for patients' daily and occupational functioning.
15.0 hours of Continuing Education credit for Psychologists.
Full attendance at the seminar is required to receive CE credit. Partial credits cannot be awarded.
