Assessment Tools for Hypothetical Cases Discussion
Hypothetical case 1: A 10-year-old boy who seems very intelligent to his parents and teacher is getting very low grades. He is frequently inattentive to the teacher and seems “spaced out.” There is no history of trauma to the head and no indications of serious mental disorder. It is not clear whether his problems occur solely in the classroom or elsewhere, too. The boy and his parents come to you for an assessment. List relevant assessment tools and discuss why they are the best.
Hypothetical case 2: A 57-year-old man with a history of heavy drinking is frequently sad, angry, and anxious. His work performance has suffered—he is forgetful, disorganized, and low in energy. The man’s doctor wonders if the drinking has impaired his cognitive abilities; his wife wonders if he is simply very depressed. The man himself feels that he has lived his life for everyone but himself. Your assessment should respond to the concerns of the client, his doctor, and wife.
