Within medical psychology, psychological diagnostics is the area that focuses on an individual’s mental characteristics. It is necessary to provide an accurate diagnosis, suggest the best course of action, and provide the patient with all-encompassing support. When it comes to mental health, many symptoms are shared by a variety of conditions. Using suitable psychological research methodologies can assist the medical experts treating the patient in developing the most effective treatment plan or in modifying it by recommending extra medication and therapy sessions. Only licensed medical psychologists with a current medical psychology stamp and license may do psychological diagnostic testing.

How psychological diagnostic examinations are performed?

Psychological diagnostic exams are typically performed when a consulting psychiatrist feels that a more thorough assessment of the patient’s mental state—their personality, thought process, emotional state, or other factors—is necessary. The goal of the assessment is to plan treatment based on the findings, offering the most precise recommendations for continued care.

If the patient wants a more thorough investigation of the problems they are concerned about, some psychological tests may also be performed. It is advised that after self-registering for an assessment, the patient’s treating psychiatrist or the examining expert discuss the examination’s findings during a follow-up visit. In this manner, the patient receives feedback from an experienced expert and is spared self-analysis, where a mistaken interpretation of the information might have a negative impact on the patient’s health.

At the “Lotus Medica” clinic, certain diagnostic tests (such as the assessment of ADHD) can only be performed with a physician’s recommendation. After that, the patient must schedule a first or follow-up session with a psychiatrist to go over the significance of the examination, its nature, and other crucial matters pertaining to the patient’s health.

Most psychological tests include verbal or practical tasks. In addition to filling out a unique questionnaire, the patient and the psychologist must have a conversation in which the patient is questioned about their daily lives, feelings, childhood experiences, and other subjects that are significant to understanding the findings. Depending on the type of test, the length of the psychological diagnostic evaluation might range from one to two and a half hours. Alternatively, if more time is needed, multiple sessions on separate days might be scheduled for a longer-term examination that demands an especially high degree of focus. To further organize the findings of certain tests, the specialist also drafts a questionnaire intended to elicit feedback from the patient’s relatives.

The psychologists at the “Lotus Medica” clinic typically prepare the exam results in less than a week. Patients should independently register for a follow-up session with their psychiatrist to discuss the results. To maximize the effectiveness of the test and the assessment of the patient’s condition, we advise performing psychological diagnostic evaluations in-person rather than virtually.

Psychological assessments: what are they?

Exams for psychodiagnostics comprise assessments of an individual’s emotional condition, personality characteristics, memory, focus, behaviour, and thought processes. For people who are 18 years of age and older, the following primary psychological exams are performed at the “Lotus Medica” clinic:

  • psychoemotional state examination (assessment of anxiety and depression levels);
  • personality test (assessment of people’s psychological qualities, such as their character, behaviour, attitudes, factors causing tension, stress or other emotional distress, personal strengths and weaknesses);
  • intelligence (IQ) assessment (assessment of people’s abilities, strengths and difficulties, personality traits);
  • thinking examination (assessment of people’s thinking process, its characteristics, efficiency, reasoning and generalisation skills);
  • advanced personality, psychoemotional state and thinking examination;
  • cognitive function assessment (assessment of memory types, concentration skills, analysis of information processing, memorisation);
  • short cognitive function assessment (MMSE, Blessed Dementia Scales that assess people’s mental state, i.e., for early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease);
  • ADHD (Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) examination with additional assessment of autism/personality/emotional state (with the referral of a psychiatrist, the diagnostic questionnaire is administered to adult patients aged 18 and over).

Psychological examinations at “Lotus Medica” clinic carried out for children and teenagers:

  • psychological examination using the Wechsler Intelligence Scale (WISC-III);
  • psychoemotional state examination;
  • Child Autism Spectrum Disorder examination (CARS);
  • personality and thinking examinations.

During the assessment, psychologist compares the findings with the defined norms and, if there are any deviations, assesses how significant they are for the person’s mental state and symptoms for which help has been requested in the first place.

Where should one turn for a psychological examination?

It is usually advised to have a conversation with the patient’s consultant psychiatrist regarding the value and necessity of psychological testing. Psychiatrists can determine if an examination is necessary and, in light of each patient’s unique circumstances, which kind of examination is best.
