A psychological report is a written, psychological answer to a limited single question with findings. It is based on several personal conversations and screenings with the person subjected to verification and in some circumstances with a reference person. The goal is to make a decision about a concrete issue. Therefore it is necessary to understand the development and personality of the person subjected to verification, to evaluate the cognitive abilities, to give advice and to make reasonable predictions.
Psychological reports for diagnostic use and on judicial demand in social law issues (e.g. guardianship law, transsexual-law), criminal law and penal system (e.g. criminal liability, estimating the risk of violent behavior), guardianship- and family law (e.g. custody, visitation rights, deprivation of parental rights) can be written.
