Assessment is made after clinical sessions that might include a group of cognitive, emotional and psychiatric tests (such as K-ABC, CAT and drawing personage or family) and psychiatric evaluation (DSM V).
Assessment helps to identify present psychological problems and to determine clinical diagnosis and possible prognoses. It allows psychologists and the multidisciplinary team to devise life and care plans that meet patients' needs.
Once this step is achieved, patients and their families are oriented according to the plan previously agreed upon by the multidisciplinary team. It can propose psychiatric consultations, psychological follow-ups, etc.
