Psychological assessments can fill a variety of needs, from understanding yourself and your problems better, establishing a diagnosis, creating a treatment plan, learning about your personality, or cognitive and/or academic strengths and weaknesses.
Psychologists use a variety of tools as needed, from clinical interviews, standardized measures, observation, and medical file reviews. At times, it may be helpful to speak with family, friends, doctors, or teachers to better understand a client’s strengths, personality, emotions, and behaviour. We will then use this information to formulate a comprehensive and complete picture of the person being tested, and to make recommendations .
