Notes These workshops will present a comprehensive review of the structure, function and test operating characteristics of the recently published WAIS-IV, the WMS-IV and the Advanced Clinical Solutions (ACS) package and provide clinical guidelines for the use of these instruments in assessing cases of dementia, traumatic brain injury and psychiatric disorders. The aim of the workshop is to provide clinicians with sensible, psychometrically sound guidelines for conducting assessments of intelligence and memory in the clinical setting and to do so in a way that is both clinically and statistically meaningful.
