Psychological Evaluations for Adoption
Several countries now require psychological evaluations as part of the adoption process.
The typical adoption evaluation requires:
A clinical interview with a psychologist (one-and-a-half to two-hour appointment)
Administration of objective psychological evaluation such as the MMPI
Once the testing is completed, a report is generated and often reviewed by the adoption agency. The agency will confirm the report contains all required content. If translation is needed, the report is reviewed for potential sticking points. After edits are made, the report is finalized and notarized before final copies are mailed.
