Psychological Assessment

 

A psychological evaluation is the examination of a individual's behavior, personality, capabilities, and socio-emotional adjustment. This type of evaluation is often used for clarification of diagnosis or to gain a more in depth understanding of an adult, child, or adolescent's emotional functioning.
