What are Psychological Assessments? Psychological assessments are specialized tools that can be used as part of a therapeutic intervention to observe clients behaviors, provide further insights and guide therapy. Some assessment tools are used separately for diagnostic purposes to determine the nature and extent of a psychological/ psychiatric disorder.
Psychologists often customize a set of psychological tests to address the specific psychological phenomena under investigation.
Individuals who have been referred for consultation with medical and or allied health professions may be subjected to other forms of assessments to determine their status based on their presenting problem.
