This workshop reviews normal and abnormal aspects of adolescent cognitive and emotional development. You will review changes in psychiatric diagnosis germane to the psychological/neuropsychological testing of adolescents in the "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual-5” (DSM-5), (American Psychiatric Association). Learn about indications and contraindications for psychological/neuropsychological testing with adolescents, and how to make an effective referral for testing. Tests useful in differential diagnosis and psycho-educational planning will be reviewed. These include the Wechsler Intelligence Scales, and brief screening methods for anxiety, depression, prodromal psychosis, non-suicidal and suicidal self-harm, and mild autism spectrum disorder. Workshop participants are encouraged to discuss their experience with adolescent testing cases as well as adolescents who might benefit from testing.
