Psychological Assessment is a scientific method which analyses and evaluates the psychological function of a child, adolescent, or adult, highlighting emotional, cognitive, and clinically relevant characteristics. According to each specific case, a combination of objective and projective techniques are used, as well as clinical observation. Assessments are carried out in 4 to 6 sessions, including an initial interview, as well as a final session in which a report is provided and results may be discussed.
Psychological Assessments are often required by schools, hospitals, and other entities, and are generally carried out prior to an individual therapy, in order to gain an overall psychological understanding of a person and determine the appropriateness and potential focuses for subsequent therapy.
Duration: 5-6 sessions (50min each).
