Evaluations designed to assess personality identify the presence and severity of psychological, behavioral, and interpersonal symptoms related to disorders of mood, anxiety, posttraumatic stress, impulse control, and personality disorders. These assessments also clarify co-occurring or differential diagnoses, and assist in appropriate treatment planning.
