Identifying Information Within this section, you will record basic information on your client including the person’s name, sex, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, handedness, and occupation or grade level.

The information you provide in this section must justify the decision to conduct a formal psychological assessment based and must model ethically and professionally responsible assessment practices. III. Current Symptoms/Presenting Concerns The information in this section of the report would typically come from an interview with the client and family (if applicable, ., if the client is a child or person with suspected dementia). You must use the information provided in case history to identify the most salient information that belongs in this section. Choose information to include in this section based on the consistency with the reason for referral and purpose for testing.

If you have more than one measure of a particular psychological construct (., personality and emotional functioning), present your interpretations of all measures that apply to that construct under the same subheading.

Diagnostic Impressions Based on the history provided and interpretation of test results, use the DSM-5 to provide a diagnosis (or diagnoses) for the client in a manner that demonstrates the ethical and professional use of assessment results. You must justify your diagnostic conclusions based on your knowledge of the validity and reliability of the assessment instruments. If there are multiple potential diagnoses to consider, then these must be explained and justified as well. Also include information about alternative diagnoses and why these were not chosen. VII. Recommendations Within this section, provide treatment recommendations for the client based on the diagnosis and information about the client’s current living situation. Develop recommendations that are evidence-based and include peer-reviewed articles that support your choice(s). Note: The MMPI-3 is now available.
