Mastering Tele-Assessment Training (November 4-5, Two-day; In-person; Calgary, AB)

This event has passed.

The world has changed and with it, the practice of psychology. In this two-day, face-to-face workshop, participants will receive an in-depth theoretical, ethical, legal, and practical review of performing psycho-educational assessments in online environments. Participants will learn how to conceptualize and conduct psycho-educational assessments in online environments with child and adult clients.

This small group workshop (max of 12 participants) will provide hands on training on virtual psychoeducational assessment, with a specific focus on virtual standardized testing. This training will take place at the Hexagon Psychology clinic, 10 minutes north of the Calgary airport.

Participants must be comfortable using video-conferencing technologies (e.g., Zoom, MS Teams) and have familiarity with the technology they intend to use
