Psychological diagnosis in Berlin
The diagnosis is usually a series of two to three meetings. During the first or first two interviews, an interview is conducted, during which we aim to learn the most important information about the examined person and the type of their motivation for the study. We then use specific diagnostic tests.
The goals of diagnosis may vary depending on the type of diagnosis and the difficulties faced by the patient. The choice of diagnostic tests will also depend on these factors. However, we cannot forget about tools such as interview or observation, which are the basis for diagnosis and are used regardless of the type of examination performed.
Below you can read about some psychological tests used in psychological diagnosis:
Attachment style - Attachment Styles Questionnaire(KSP) The questionnaire is intended for examining attachment styles in partner (romantic) relationships. Attachment styles are characterized by different ways of interacting and behaving in relationships. In early childhood, these attachment styles focus on the interactions of children and parents. In adulthood, attachment styles are used to describe attachment patterns in romantic relationships.
Personality disorders - The Structured Clinical Interview for the Study of Personality Disorders according to DSM-5 (SCID-5-PD) is a diagnostic interview that enables the diagnosis of personality disorders based on the criteria contained in the American Psychiatric Association's classification of mental disorders. In the first place, the tested person receives a screening, self-report (self-assessment) personality questionnaire and answers the questions contained therein.
Personality - Eysenck Personality Questionnaire (EPQ-R) is used to examine the basic dimensions of personality in Eysenck's theory. EPQ-R in full version can be used for scientific research and for the purposes of individual diagnosis in clinical psychology, education, organization and work.
Depression - The scale of depression is determined by the Beck test. This is a self-report scale suitable for screening symptoms of depression. It is an auxiliary tool. It can never replace a psychological examination. It is important to give honest answers. The assessment must relate to how you feel over a period of time, from the last week to the last month. The scale invented by Aaron Beck contains 21 questions that the patient must answer. Fun fact: There are 4 variants of answers assessed in different ways.
Anxiety - Liebowitz Social Anxiety Scale (LSAS) is one of the most popular and widely used measures of social phobia, the only situation-based social anxiety instrument that also distinguishes between fear and avoidance ratings.
So the test not only gives you a measure of your social anxiety, but also a measure of how much you avoid social situations.
Temperament - Formal Characteristics of Behavior - Temperament Questionnaire. FCZ-KT(R) is a tool for diagnosing the basic, biologically conditioned dimensions of temperament, which is a component of personality in accordance with the Regulative Theory of Temperament and refers to the formal, not the content aspect of behavior. The questionnaire is used both in scientific and application research - it can be used in career and educational counseling, recruitment processes, and clinical trials.
