Clinical assessment of interpersonal dynamics (1.5 CEs)

The focus of this symposium is the clinical assessment of interpersonal dynamics. Asan and Pincus will examine the associations of several common clinical measures of schizotypy across interpersonal circumplex surfaces. Kehl and colleagues will examine how the convergence of interpersonal values and efficacies is related to interpersonal problems. Meisel and colleagues will describe how interpersonal interactions between parents and teens can be used to predict teen substance use risk. Finally, Luo and colleagues will demonstrate the use of a single case design for examining links between interpersonal processes and psychotherapy ruptures.
