Psychological diagnosis

What is a psychological diagnosis?

Psychological diagnosis is a process whose aim is to identify and describe the difficulties reported by the client, using various diagnostic techniques such as interviews, tests, questionnaires or descriptions.

The diagnosis takes into account the broad context of factors and circumstances that can be identified as the probable cause of problems.

How is the diagnosis done?

The purpose of psychological diagnosis is to develop (so-called conceptualization) difficulties, discuss the proposed diagnosis and provide suggestions for further action.  It is usually a series of several (2-4) meetings with a psychologist. The first meeting is usually used to collect an interview - before this meeting, it is good to remember what the problem is, how long it has been, whether there have been attempts to deal with it. The next meeting or meetings usually involve the use of individually selected diagnostic tools. The last meeting is a discussion of the results obtained in the study and the resulting conclusions regarding further proceedings.
