CTNA – Sweden

Collaborative Therapeutic Neuropsychological Assessment

Collaborative Therapeutic Neuropsychological Assessment (CTNA) is a method for giving feedback from neuropsychological test results that is based on client-centered principles (Gorske & Smith, 2009). Since CTNA was published in 2009, other authors have developed guidelines about the neuropsychological feedback process in clinical situations. A few studies have assessed clinical outcomes using CTNA methods. Based on these developments there appears to be burgeoning interest in a collaborative neuropsychology approach among clinicians who wish to blend the scientific discipline of neuropsychology with patient centered and collaborative methods designed to enhance the working alliance with patients seeking guidance and answers about various neuropsychological conditions. The challenge will be to find the best practice model for the CTNA approach. Neuropsychological practitioners will need to ask the same questions psychotherapists have asked in regards to the efficacy and effectiveness of psychotherapy interventions; what treatment, by whom, is most effective for this individual with that specific problem, and under which set of circumstances?” (Paul,1967). This workshop will review the principles and methods of CTNA, discuss developments since the initial publication in 2009, present case examples of CTNA in clinical practice, and propose ways CTNA may be used clinically and in research to assess efficacy and effectiveness.
