Psychology intern at a mental health facility

For this discussion, you will take on the role of a psychology intern at a mental health facility working under the supervision of a licensed psychologist.
In this role, you will conduct a psychological evaluation of a client referred to you for a second opinion using valid psychological tests and assessment
procedures.
The case study you select from the textbook will serve as the information provided to you from the professional who previously evaluated the client
(e.g., the psychologist or psychiatrist).

  1. In your initial post, begin with a paragraph briefly summarizing
    the main information about the case you selected.
    Evaluate and describe the ethical and professional interpretation of any assessment information presented in the case study. Devise an assessment
    battery for a psychological evaluation that minimally includes a clinical interview, mental status exam, intellectual assessment, observations of the
    client, and at least two assessment instruments specific to the diagnostic impressions (e.g., attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, post-traumatic
    stress disorder, autism spectrum disorder, etc.). The assessment battery must include at least one approach to assessing your client which is different
    from the assessments previously administered. The assessment plan must be presented as a list of recommended psychological tests and
    assessment procedures with a brief sentence explaining the purpose of each test or procedure. Following the list of tests and assessment procedures
    you recommend for your client, compare the assessment instruments that fall within the same categories (e.g., intellectual or achievement), and
    debate the pros of cons of the instruments and procedures you selected versus the instruments and procedures reported by the referring
    professional.
