Designing and Developing Psychological Screening Assessments (2-day Workshop in Davao City)

Psychconsult, Inc., Olive Branch Wellness Center, and the Ateneo de Davao University Psychology Department invite you to...


This 2-day hands-on workshop combines good practices in psychological assessment through planned and targeted psychological screening aimed to serve clients sharing a similar purpose of assessment.  

Through short lectures, tabletop exercises, coaching, and critical discussions, participants are led to evaluate and re-conceptualize their previous assessment practices and report output.  After participants are engaged to clarify the scope and nature of psychological screening and outline broad strokes of good practices in psychological assessment, they will be asked to review their typical processes and practices as they are guided through the 6-step rational approach in psychological screening.

These steps include considering and defining the following: 1) the purpose of assessment and its stakeholders, 2) relevant psychological constructs and dimensions to be measured, 3) pertinent assessment methods, 4) available psychological tests and measures, 5) methods of communicating assessment results, and 6) an evaluation plan.


At the end of the 2-day workshop, participants are able to:

1) Clearly identify the purpose of psychological screening and its stakeholders

2) Define and articulate the salient psychological constructs and dimensions (characteristics) to be measured

3) Align areas to be measured with the 4 pillars of assessment: behavioral observations,
interviews, norm-referenced tests, and informal assessment methods.

4) Craft interview questions and rehash on good interviewing skills

5) Select aligned psychological tests and other measures

6) Design a psychological screening report template

7) Create an evaluation plan
