CWS training THIRD level (Instructor: J.Palm)
The Level 3 workshop focuses on intermediate interpretation and diagnostic meaning of the various indices, percentages, and ratios reviewed and scored during Level 1 and 2 workshops. Interpretation focuses on integration of indices into a client-cantered conceptualization, detailing the client’s functioning in the domains of cognitive abilities, reality testing, available energy, affect regulation, and interpersonal skills. Use of the Wartegg as it relates to the Collaborative/ Therapeutic Assessment practice of Extended Inquiry is further examined. Case studies are utilized to apply knowledge throughout the training sequence.

(including indices and computations), applying to clinical cases.
