How many times have you entered the testing room, started the battery, and figured out that you left something crucial in another office (for me, it’s always my phone/stopwatch)? Or how many times have you sent out a report only to get an email back from the client asking why there’s another name on the report? Yikes! Both of these – and many other slip-ups – are mistakes that could have been avoided with a little preparation or double-checking. Today’s episode is a commentary on mistakes and how to avoid them. It draws heavily on material from Atul Gawande’s book, The Checklist Manifesto. Turns out a simple checklist can go a long way!

About Dr. Jeremy Sharp
I’m a licensed psychologist and Clinical Director at the Colorado Center for Assessment & Counseling, a private practice that I founded in 2009 and have grown to over 20 clinicians. I earned my undergraduate degree in Experimental Psychology from the University of South Carolina before getting my Master’s and PhD in Counseling Psychology from Colorado State University. These days, I specialize in psychological and neuropsychological evaluation with kids and adolescents.
As the host of the Testing Psychologist Podcast, I provide private practice consulting for psychologists and other mental health professionals who want to start or grow psychological testing services in their practices. I live in Fort Collins, Colorado with my wife (also a therapist) and two young kids.
