Psychological testing allows a client to view his or her abilities or experiences in light of a “normative sample.” For example, how is my memory functioning compared to other people my age? Or how significant are my experiences of depression or anxiety?
Psychological testing may include assessment of:
- Personality traits and styles
- General intelligence
- Academic strengths and weaknesses
Examples of clinical issues addressed in the psychological evaluation include personality disorder, learning disorder, and mood or anxiety disorder.
