Working Through a Case StudyThis week, you were introduced to the following branches of.
This week, you were introduced to the following branches of psychology:
While these three specialty areas share overlap with goals for clients and the tools they employ in the process of assessment, they each have a unique set of content knowledge and skills that are acquired by professionals through training. Because of this, they provide differentiated roles and services. As a result of this differentiation, the referring concern and the needs of an individual will likely indicate which professional ad branch may be best suited to complete the assessment.
In Weeks 6 through 9, you studied different applications of tests and measurements in a variety of settings and specialty areas. Regardless of the specialization, it is likely that at some time, a psychologist will have a client with one of the referral concerns including possible neurological problems. This week, you read about psychologists using a standard battery to gather information on an individual from a variety of tests and instruments as a means of screening for a neurological deficit. A minimum amount of testing for an adequate neuropsychological screening includes the following:
Perceptual, motor, or memory test.
In this discussion, you will refer to the following case study to answer the questions in Part 1 and Part 2 of this activity. In this study, you are taking the role of a psychologist. Andy was referred to you as a patient.
Name: Andrew “Andy” Davis.
Age: 6 years, 0 months.
Mother: Emily Davis, single parent.
Recent changes: Relocation to a smaller house, father abandoned family.
Referral concerns (reported by mother): Frequent intense imaginative play, significantly reduced social interactions, talks to self in his room, destroys toys (for example, rips arms of dolls), falls frequently, and concerns that he fell downstairs (with no open head injury) at the new house (that is, Andy reported falling down and off staircase railing).
Based on this referral information, what would be the three tests you would include in a standard battery for screening purposes that include neurological concerns?
You may use, as a guide, the same test list that was provided to you in Week 2. You are allowed to choose tests outside of those on the list. This task will allow you to review tests covered in earlier weeks of this course, as well as some that are introduced this week. However, remember to address a minimum of three recommended areas of assessment for a screening of this type. Be sure to take into consideration the age range appropriate for the tests and instruments you select. Then, provide an explanation for using each instrument and how it connects to your working hypothesis on Andy and his mother’s concerns.
You complete your evaluation using the three (or more) tests in your standard battery and obtain signs signaling that a more thorough neuropsychological evaluation is recommended. Subsequently, Andy is referred to Dr. Woody Pride, a neuropsychologist. Dr. Pride decides to administer Andy the Brief Neuropsychological Cognitive Examination (BNCE) since it can be administered in one sitting and reports that it minimizes reading skills to complete it.
Based on this information from Dr. Pride, and after conducting your own research on this test selection, determine if this is an appropriate test to obtain additional data on Andy regarding neuropsychological concerns. If it is appropriate, then state that and provide your rationale for supporting this as a test selection. If it is not appropriate, then state that and provide your rationale for rejecting this as a test selection. Finally, regardless if you find the BNCE appropriate or not for Andy and the referring concerns, identify a second neuropsychological test that would be highly recommended for its use with Andy (you may select one from the list provided you in Week 2, or another neuropsychological test battery).
As a test user, identify any APA ethical standards regarding assessment practices (standards 9.01-9.11), which are implicated in this case study of Andy Davis.
Using the 3-5 articles identified and discussed in DQ1, synthesize an argument for the problem
Using the 3-5 articles identified and discussed in DQ1, synthesize an argument for the problem space of your proposed topic in 5-6 sentences. What is the overall problem? What has been discovered about the problem? What still needs to be understood (the problem space)? How will your proposed topic contribute to the problem space? Include citations and references.
Three Articles- Problem Space
Experiences – What type of experiences are military members dealing with that may prevent them from seeking help from a mental health professional (Britt, et al., 2017)
Culture – How does the perceived climate affect those seeking mental health services (Britt, et al., 2017)
Accessibility – Would telemental health services increase the accessibility to mental health services (Moreau, J. L. et al (2017)

Psychology Assignment Help In this week’s presentation, you were introduced to what it means to hold a biblical worldview and you were encouraged to think about how your research area would be examined from a biblical worldview. Think about the trending areas of research that you identified last week and then consider how they could be examined from a biblical worldview.
After you consider this, please post the following:
Describe one area/topic of research that interests you.
Share what research in this area would look like from a biblical worldview.
Post of at least 300 words using at lease two scholarly sources in APA format.
