2015 Multicultural Neuropsychology Conference
On April 11, 2015 Alliant Los Angeles will be hosting the second annual Multicultural Neuropsychology Conference. This year there are three guest speakers: Dr. Terece Bell, Dr. April Thames and Dr. Olivia Hsin, who will be speaking on a variety of topics including how to use a neuropsychological approach to assess learning disabilities in children and adolescents from under-served communities, and understanding the influence of psychosocial factors such as stereotype threat on neuropsychological test performance.
There will also be a poster-session in which graduate students will share their knowledge of current clinical issues and/or recent work in the areas of multicultural neuropsychology and health assessment.
