5 Matching questions

  1. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
  2. Videotape Reconstruction
  3. Clinical Interview
  4. Cognitive-Behavioral Case Formulation
  5. Thematic Apperception Test (TAT)
  1. a A technique for measuring the structure (or, in the case of functional magnetic resonance imaging, the activity) of the living brain. The person is placed inside a large circular magnet that causes hydrogen atoms to move; the return of the atoms to their original positions when the current to the magnet is turned off is translated by a computer into pictures of brain tissue.
  2. b A conversation between a clinician and a patient that is aimed at determining diagnosis, history, causes for problems, and possible treatment options.
  3. c A process in which a cognitive-behavioral therapist attempts to ascertain how the various problems experienced by a client are related in order to pick out target behaviors that will become the focus of therapy.
  4. d A projective test consisting of a set of black-and-white pictures reproduced on cards, each depicting a potentially emotion-laden situation. The examinee, presented with the cards one at a time, is instructed to make up a story about each situation.
  5. e A technique for assessing a person's thoughts and feelings. It involves having the person recall his or her reactions while watching a videotape of a previous tim when they were engaged in a task.

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. A lengthy personality inventory by which individuals are diagnosed through their true-false replies to groups of statements indicating states such as anxiety, depression, masculinity-femininity, and paranoia.
  2. Modification of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which allows researchers to take pictures of the brain so quickly that metabolic changes can be measured, resulting in a picture of the brain at work rather than of its structure alone.
  3. The degree to which different items of an assessment are related to one another.
  4. The extent to which a measure is associated in an expected way with some other measure (the criterion).
  5. The notion that highly unstructured stimuli, as in the Rorschach inkblot test, are necessary to bypass defences in order to reveal unconscious motives and conflicts.

5 True/False questions

  1. Family FunctioningIn behavioral assessment, a procedure whereby the individual observes and reports certain aspects of his or her behavior, thoughts, or emotions.


  2. Event-Related Potential (ERP)A graphic recording of electrical activity of the brain, usually of the cerebral cortex, but sometimes of lower areas.


  3. Behavioral ObservationA conversation between a clinician and a patient that is aimed at determining diagnosis, history, causes for problems, and possible treatment options.


  4. ElectrocardiogramA physician who studies the nervous system, especially its structure, functions, and abnormalities.


  5. Content ValidityThe extent to which scores of rating on an assessment instrument rated to other variables or behaviors according to some theory or hypothesis.
