Identifying information Within this section, you will record basic information on your client including the person’s name, sex, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, handedness, and occupation or grade level. For the purposes of this assignment, you are free to create any relevant demographic information that is not explicitly stated in the case scenario. All information you create must be consistent with the information provided and any conclusions you draw in subsequent sections of your paper. II. Reason for referral Within this section describe the referral source and the purpose of the assessment. The information you provide in this section must justify the decision to conduct a formal psychological assessment based and must model ethically and professionally responsible assessment practices. III. Current Symptoms/Presenting Concerns The information in this section of the report would typically come from an interview with the client and family (if applicable, e.g., if the client is a child or person with suspected dementia). You must use the information provided in case history to identify the most salient information that belongs in this section. Choose information to include in this section based on the consistency with the reason for referral and purpose for testing. Here is where you will apply your methodological and theoretical assessment formulations of the client that will justify the decision to conduct a psychological evaluation on this client. IV. Psychosocial History (complete each of the sections below based on the information in the case you selected) Educational history Occupational history Medical history (including substance use/abuse) Psychiatric history Social history Your assignment must be of sufficient depth and detail to support and inform your eventual diagnostic impressions. A cursory or surface level review of the client’s presenting problem and history will unlikely provide enough information for your diagnostic impression. The assignment must also include a page with relevant references based on your initial impressions of possible diagnostic considerations from the history that you have reviewed.
