- Clinical Interview
- Cognitive-Behavioral Case Formulation
- Thematic Apperception Test (TAT)
- a A technique for measuring the structure (or, in the case of functional magnetic resonance imaging, the activity) of the living brain. The person is placed inside a large circular magnet that causes hydrogen atoms to move; the return of the atoms to their original positions when the current to the magnet is turned off is translated by a computer into pictures of brain tissue.
- b A conversation between a clinician and a patient that is aimed at determining diagnosis, history, causes for problems, and possible treatment options.
- c A process in which a cognitive-behavioral therapist attempts to ascertain how the various problems experienced by a client are related in order to pick out target behaviors that will become the focus of therapy.
- d A projective test consisting of a set of black-and-white pictures reproduced on cards, each depicting a potentially emotion-laden situation. The examinee, presented with the cards one at a time, is instructed to make up a story about each situation.
- e A technique for assessing a person's thoughts and feelings. It involves having the person recall his or her reactions while watching a videotape of a previous tim when they were engaged in a task.
5 Multiple choice questions
- A lengthy personality inventory by which individuals are diagnosed through their true-false replies to groups of statements indicating states such as anxiety, depression, masculinity-femininity, and paranoia.
- Modification of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which allows researchers to take pictures of the brain so quickly that metabolic changes can be measured, resulting in a picture of the brain at work rather than of its structure alone.
- The degree to which different items of an assessment are related to one another.
- The extent to which a measure is associated in an expected way with some other measure (the criterion).
- The notion that highly unstructured stimuli, as in the Rorschach inkblot test, are necessary to bypass defences in order to reveal unconscious motives and conflicts.

Family Functioning → In behavioral assessment, a procedure whereby the individual observes and reports certain aspects of his or her behavior, thoughts, or emotions.
Event-Related Potential (ERP) → A graphic recording of electrical activity of the brain, usually of the cerebral cortex, but sometimes of lower areas.
Behavioral Observation → A conversation between a clinician and a patient that is aimed at determining diagnosis, history, causes for problems, and possible treatment options.
Electrocardiogram → A physician who studies the nervous system, especially its structure, functions, and abnormalities.
Content Validity → The extent to which scores of rating on an assessment instrument rated to other variables or behaviors according to some theory or hypothesis.
