Assessment and Diagnosis of Adults – an integrative clinical approach Click for details

A course provided by Dr Janine Robinson, Chartered Clinical Psychologist

A two-day training course for clinicians (clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, and related professionals) who want to set up their own diagnostic service or want to improve their diagnostic skills. The course covers training in the use of the diagnostic instrument, the Adult Asperger Assessment (AAA), and related screening instruments, the Autism Spectrum Quotient (AQ), the Empathy Quotient (EQ), and the Relatives’ Questionnaire.

The course covers all aspects surrounding screening, assessment and diagnosis, with invited lecturers on the first day. The second day provides the opportunity for interactive discussion, with a DVD presentation of the standard AAA assessment procedure. Trainees gain experience in conducting Asperger Syndrome (AS) assessments for adults, employing the AAA diagnostic method. Courses are run 4 times per year with an average of 10 trainees per course. The course is held at a convenient location in Cambridge.
