In the Medical field, a doctor often requests a blood test, a brain MRI or a CT Scan among other laboratory tests. Unfortunately, in the Mental Health field, these tests are not helpful. Clinical Psychologists use special tests to get more information about a person's intelligence, cognitive functions, academic difficulties, learning disabilities, personality etc
Psychological Testing is often recommended to provide further explanation for a person's problem. Tests are designed to help in understanding what is wrong and also to get an accurate diagnosis or to help the person, the parents, the children and the school teachers and coordinators. Psychological Testing completes the multisession interview done by the psychologist in order to develop an appropriate treatment plan.
At Nawfal Clinics, we administer many psychological tests. Each test is used for a different goal and assesses different psychological domains. The test used is chosen after many psychological sessions and after meticulous analysis of the patient's case. We do not ask for psychological tests from the first visit.
PS: Nawfal Clinics has bought the rights to use the below tests from the original publishers and has the full eligibility to use them by our qualified psychologists.
