Abstract: “Assessment” is the application of a measurement method to support a particular goal. This chapter presents a model of evidence-based assessment (EBA) that integrates assessment with treatment and provides a framework for the assessment of mental disorders in youth and adults. The model includes an initial preparation phase in which clinicians review their practices to determine their most common assessment needs and the available EBA options to address these needs. With this in place, the chapter outlines the next phases of the model focusing on client prediction (including possible diagnoses), prescription (assessing constructs most relevant to client functioning and treatment decisions), and process (treatment monitoring and outcome evaluation).
