We use progressive psychological testing to assess symptom severity in comparison with the general population. It helps you understand how you are doing in comparison with the average person. The tests assign a specific number to your level of distress, making tracking of a given symptom over time much easier. This can be a very normalizing experience.
Psychological assessment is also used to detect disorders and potential developmental problems like ADHD or other learning disorders. We can direct a specific test toward one problem or give a broad range of tests, including those that gauge intelligence, personality, and a list of clinical indications. Many of these tests are computerized, providing immediate results for discussion.
Psychological assessment is a process that combines techniques to arrive at some hypotheses about a person and their behavior, personality, and capabilities. In our practice, testing is also used to track progress and to help put a number or tangible figure on the symptoms and traits of interest. For example, it can be very helpful to know how depressed or anxious you are, compared to the national average. Psychological assessment is also referred to as psychological testing or performing a psychological battery on a person.
