Psychological evaluation

What is Psychological evaluation?

"Psychological Evaluation" is a general term which can have a variety of meanings. If a person is recommended to have a psychological evaluation, it would be appropriate, even recommended, to ask what their particular evaluation would involve. Psychological evaluations are usually requested when there is some question about what might be troubling a particular person, or to gather information about a person's current emotional well-being, psychological or personality make-up, or academic and intellectual functioning. At the minimum, a psychological evaluation typically involves an individual interview with a psychologist that would last for at least one hour. An evaluation like this might also be called an "assessment" or an "initial assessment" for the purpose of gaining information about a person or their particular problem or situation.
