APA Division 12
Society of Clinical Psychology
Section IX (Assessment Psychology) of the Society of Clinical Psychology (APA Division 12) is dedicated to the promotion of quality assessment in the practice and science of psychology. Although the vital importance of assessment is demonstrated in such specialized areas as forensic, neuropsychological, and psycho-educational applications, its utility is more broadly demonstrated in contemporary clinical practice as applied in differential diagnosis, treatment planning, and the measurement of treatment effectiveness. Clinical assessment is the unique contribution that psychologists make to the field of mental health. We believe that assessment plays an important role in all areas of applied psychology. We promote quality assessment and support excellence in assessment training and supervision at the graduate, internship, and postdoctoral level. + details
