Psychological Testing & Assessment

What's the purpose of assessments?

Psychological assessment presents a set of steps that are focused on gathering and integrating data to evaluate a client’s behaviour, abilities, and other characteristics.

There are three main purposes of psychological assessment:

  1. To identify client’s adaptive and maladaptive behaviors and treatment goals
  2. To identify factors that influence client’s behaviors and treatment goals
  3. To integrate assessment information to design and evaluate interventions that can improve a client’s quality of life.
How does it work?

Assessment data may be gathered through interviews, observation, standardised tests, self-report measures or other specialised procedures and apparatuses. Psychologists choose specific tests, questionnaires and protocols based on the reason for referral, presenting problems and specific needs of the client.
