What Does This Type of Assessment Entail?
The nature and duration of the assessment will vary depending on the individual presentation and on whether the client is a child or an adult. Several different aspects of a person’s functioning are usually assessed, for example, emotional well-being, social functioning, behaviour, adaptive skills, personality and cognitive capabilities.
Our highly trained Psychologists are skilled in using a combination of assessment techniques, including clinical interview, psychometric testing and (in the case of children) behavioural or play-based assessments.
In-depth clinical assessments will be usually carried out by one of our Clinical Psychologists (or one of our Forensic Psychologists who is experienced in working with general mental health).Our Psychologists will be sure to put the client at ease, provide encouragement and ensure that the client is not fatigued. Assessments usually take place over several sessions.
