Question description

505 week 6 discussion


Your active participation in the weekly Discussion is important to the shared learning experience. Active discussion also develops our community of budding counselors, therapists, and researchers. Please participate as early in the week as possible, and be sure to share your thoughts and ideas as often as you can throughout the unit.

Address the topics. Your original response should be at least 350 words and should reflect the fact that you have completed the assigned readings for the week. Remember, this is your chance to illustrate not only your understanding, but also your mastery of the materials for the unit. Use your words wisely so the posting has substance and includes examples and explanations. Limit the use of direct quotes, and do your best to critically evaluate and synthesize the literature in your own words wherever possible. Make sure to include in-text citations and a reference list as appropriate.

1) Evidence of Intelligence [1 of 2] ( 350 word )

Pick someone well-known whom you believe to be “intelligent.” Everyone has to pick someone different, so first come, first served!

But, be careful. You will also discuss in detail, using scholarly/academic resources to support your observations, why exactly you believe this person to be intelligent. What did he or she display that has been empirically linked to intelligence? What kinds of evidence would you provide for your argument that this individual is intelligent? Be sure to include references and specifics regarding your observations.

2) Cognitive Functioning [2 of 2] ( 350 words)

In your specialty area, imagine that you received a referral from a colleague for a psychological assessment concentrating on cognitive functioning.

Create a referral question, for example, “Please assess this individual in terms of his/her ability to participate in and benefit from an inpatient substance abuse rehabilitation program.”

Pick the appropriate instrument for a specific client among the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale IV (WAIS-IV), the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children IV (WISC-IV), or the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence-III (WPPSI-III).

Describe the client’s demographics, for example, “38-year-old divorced female…”

Employing the correct instrument for the client and the referral question, briefly review each of the subscales in terms of:

1.  What are they believed to measure?

2.  How, specifically, would each score contribute information that would answer the referral question?
