Psychological Report Writing: Resources, Research, and Strategies
Gary Groth-Marnat, Ph.D., ABPP, ABAP

This free webcast will introduce the challenges, problems, research, and resources associated with report writing. The primary focus will be to review the following six core principles of an optimal report:

  1. Strong connection between the referral question and answer in the summary/recommendations,
  2. Readable content and format,
  3. Consumer rather than test orientation,
  4. Interpretations organized according to domains,
  5. Integrated/readable expansion of interpretations that are connected to the client’s world,
  6. Recommendations that are comprehensive along with a treatment plan that is integrated with interpretations.

Each of these six principles will be accompanied by clear, specific strategies on how they can be achieved along with case and report examples.


Gary Groth-Marnat, Ph.D., ABPP, ABAP is lecturer, researcher, author, and practicing psychologist.
