Efficacy of Clinical Assessment
The overarching goal of the webinar series is to promote the value of assessment by framing it as a significant component of practice that enriches the professional decision-making processes. The series will focus on myriad ways in which clinical assessment contributes to evidence-based mental health interventions. Sessions within the series will serve to:
- encourage the incorporation of assessment services as a component of treatment plans;
- present evidence that assessment services are effective in reducing duration of treatment or recurrence;
- offer arguments for expanding attention to assessment services in practice guidelines; and
- expand training of practitioners to ensure awareness of current assessment practices, standards, and legal and ethical requirements.
