On January 16, Dr. Amelio D’Onofrio and Dr. Zsuzsanna Kiraly led a Report Writing Workshop for Counseling and School Psychology students. The workshop addressed all components of psychological report writing (referral, background information, behavior observation, data analysis as well as data integration). It was a great opportunity to help students fine-tune their writing skills!
