Discussion – Week 9

Selecting Assessments

The Alexander Street Videos include many selections that cover specific issues, diagnoses, and treatments. Consider the population that you hope to work with as a counselor, such as at-risk youth, or people with anxiety. Use the Mental Measurements Yearbook (MMY) and the Alexander Street Videos (AVON in the Walden Library) to find out more about these topics and appropriate assessments.

To Prepare:

  • The Walden Library has licensed a collection of videos from publisher Alexander Street, which includes many relevant to counseling and therapy. To access these videos:

    Access the Walden Library and select Databases A-Z on the home page.
    Then select Academic Video Online (AVON)
    The next screen is the home  page for Alexander Street Videos

  • Search for assessments on topics such as depression, suicide risk, and other topics. Find videos of assessments that correspond to these topics of interest. I chose depression in teens
  • As you review these videos, and through your search of the MMY, think about the population that you hope to work with as a counselor. Consider which assessments would be appropriate to use with this population.

By Day 3 of Week 9

Post your reflection. Also, describe:

  • The population you hope to work with as a future counselor (At-risk youth)
  • Three assessments that you think you will use the most with your population
  • Explain why you would use these assessments

Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources. Identify current relevant literature to support your work.
