Abstract

There are various methods which have been employed in psychology and other disciplines to determine the focus of treatment. Psychometric tests, personal inventories, clinical interviews, and behavior ratings have all found favor in different times and places. Most frequently it is the report of others, whether relative, teacher, case worker or counselor which determines the nature and form of therapy. All too often the patient’s answer to the query, “What changes do you wish to make?” is ignored.
