Psychological Assessment

The purpose of psychological testing is to understand more about the way a person thinks, feels, and relates to the world.  Psychological tests range from pencil-and-paper symptom checklists to structured interviews to free-form activities that provide a window into a person’s inner life.  The results of psychological testing may be used for several purposes, such as to enumerate personality characteristics, identify troublesome patterns in a person’s life, design individualized treatment approaches, and assist in diagnosing psychiatric conditions such as bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety.  A neuropsychologist typically incorporates at least some measures of psychological functioning into an evaluation, since psychiatric conditions can have a major impact on our thoughts, behaviors, and abilities.
