SCADUTO, Alessandro Antonio; CARDOSO, Lucila Moraes  and  HECK, Vanessa Stumpf. Therapeutic and Interventional Models in Psychological Assessment: State of the Art in Brazil. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.18, n.1, pp. 67-75. ISSN 1677-0471.

Several authors have described innovative uses of psychological assessment resources, in order to promote therapeutic effects in Clinical and/or Health Psychology contexts. The present study discusses three of these models, namely, Interventional Psychodiagnosis, Psychoanalytical-based Interventional Psychodiagnosis and Therapeutic Assessment. We present the assumptions, structure (techniques and interventions), advantages compared to traditional assessment models and research in Brazil so far of these models; following this, we discuss the potentials and limitations of these models. We conclude that the three models share the assumption that assessment and brief interventions are integrated, in order to promote therapeutic effects, offering the clients opportunities to feel respected and comprehend their own requirements. At the same time, these models are limited for helping people with severe complaints, or in compulsory assessment situations.

Keywords : psychological assessment; therapeutic assessment; psychodiagnosis; interventional psychodiagnosis; intervention.
