Giving patients feedback regarding their neuropsychological assessment results can be a challenge to trainees and professionals alike.

Learning Objectives:
After the webinar, participants will be able to:

1. Describe ways to present information in a way that is clear to understand and relevant to the patient and care team.
2. Develop strategies to increase relevance of patient findings to their daily life.
3. Manage challenging situations in feedback (e.g. giving a difficult diagnosis, managing family dynamics) 

Target Audience: doctoral level, internship, and fellowship students in clinical neuropsychology as well as early career faculty
