Psychometric assessments are an intrinsic part of the therapeutic process.
They provide detailed information about the cognitive, behavioral, and social-emotional dimensions of the person. They allow a more precise analysis in order to establish an adequate diagnosis, in addition to identifying strengths and weaknesses of the patient for the design of an effective and personalized treatment plan.
- Cognitive Tests – They allow us to know the individual's IQ, verbal and non-verbal abilities, memory, processing speed, levels of attention, among others.
- Vocational Tests – They help us know the psychological profile, skills and abilities of the person, in order to help them in making decisions related to their career and/or profession.
- Personality Tests – They shed light on the individual's personality traits and possible pathologies and personality disorders.
- Marital Satisfaction Tests – Contribute to knowing the relationship dynamics, communication styles and main difficulties of coexistence of the evaluated couple.
- Projective Tests – They give us access to know more about the personality traits of the individual, their emotional state, their perception of the world and their relationship with the environment.
- Diagnostic Testing – Helps us measure clinical symptoms relevant to diagnosis and psychological and/or psychiatric treatment
