Psychological Assessments can aid in clarifying and diagnosing various social, emotional, and behavioral disorders. Assessments provide a formal means of measuring personality characteristics, including feelings, attitudes, and beliefs that may be contributing to current difficulties.
They may be focal, such as examining a set of symptoms such as depression, anxiety, and general emotional distress, or they may be more global, providing a picture of a person's personality and interpersonal abilities.
Psychological testing can assist in providing diagnostic clarification secondary to behavioral, emotional or social concerns. Recommendation may be used to guide treatment and develop interventions.
