Psychological Testing and Evaluation KMA Therapy Toronto

What is Psychological Testing and Evaluation?


Sometimes in therapy, in order to fully understand the extent and nature of our problems, we believe it’s important to conduct psychometric tests. These are empirical tests designed to help us understand how mild or severe one’s symptoms are and help us to understand the best course of action, including treatment plan, objectives, and goals.  

Psychological assessment is similar to psychological testing but usually involves a more comprehensive assessment. Psychological assessment is a process that involves the integration of
information from multiple sources, such as tests of normal and abnormal personality, tests of ability or intelligence, tests of interests or attitudes, as well as information from personal interviews. Collateral information is also collected about personal, occupational, or medical history, such as from records or from interviews with parents, spouses, teachers, or previous therapists or physicians.

What are some examples of Psychometric Tests we use at KMA?

Some examples of tests we use here at KMA during testing
are:

MMPI-2 (Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory)

HADs (Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale)

BSS (Beck Scale for Suicidal Ideation)

BAI (Beck Anxiety Inventory)

Y-BOCs (Yale Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale)
