Leerdoelen At the end of this course, students can:
- structure a conversation based on various conversation models used in psychological interviews,
- practice professional communication skills,
- discuss the use of assessment tools with a client.
Omschrijving Communication and Diagnostic Skills teaches skills that all psychology graduates need to know, regardless of which direction they go into later.

This course builds on the knowledge of Dialogue and Group Skills, and introduces students to two models used in psychological communication. By means of group discussions, role-playing exercises, and giving and receiving concrete feedback (i.e., by using video recordings) students will learn to methodologically hold psychological interviews, from the relationship-building phase to the assessment phase.

This is a practical course with mandatory attendance. Students will have weekly meetings in groups of 12 throughout the semester. Being prepared and being active in class is required. The textbook is the same as that used in Dialogue and Group Skills.
