“Many therapists have differing opinions on the role and function of a therapeutic assessment. Some therapists believe that assessments should focus on assessment tools and be standardized to each client. Other therapists believe that standardized clinical assessments can get in the way of building rapport with a client. A small number of traditional experiential therapists do not believe in assessments at all. What are your thoughts on the role of a clinical assessment? Should they be standardized? Should they be tailored to each client?”
