About the Course

We are all aware of the fact that only clinical psychologists are authorized to conduct formal psychological tests. However, the job of every other psychologist demands the need of performing an informal assessment to proceed further with a case, before sending the client for a formal clinical assessment. We should also accept the fact that an informal assessment, most of the times, plays a more vital role than a formal assessment and the knowledge of how to do an accurate informal assessment is probably all what a psychologist basically requires.

This course is exclusively designed to provide the participant with tremendous and extensive knowledge on how to conduct an informal assessment. The participant will be trained on the various methods of assessing intelligence, emotion, mental health, behavior, academic skills, learning capabilities and much more of a child/adolescent.
