Innovations in Assessment
The CAB represents a conceptual and technological breakthrough in the assessment field. The art and text, its analysis, are generated by the test taker, who also benefits from insights, which lead to actionable changes. The computer organizes the information in a printable report. The battery is a self-assessment, which is an exercise of creativity for self-discovery with three functions: it is didactic, diagnostic and therapeutic without requiring professional services.
The CAB is a theory based self-assessment while other tests are atheoretical. The Formal Theory defines the unconscious as a conflict resolving mechanism. The CAB measures the dimensions of the unconscious as a natural science conflict resolving psychodynamic utility.
The CAB combines a personality inventory identifying one’s relational modality, with a set of creativity based projectives reconstructing the syndromal nature of the thought process. The two types of testing cross-validate each other. Traditional assessments are either inventories or projectives.
The CAB is available online and as a workbook.
The online version provides a report delivered directly to the test taker without requiring professional services.
The experience is didactic, diagnostic and therapeutic. It represents a concise program of emotional education.
The tests are valid and reliable. They may be repeated to enhance progress and to monitor therapy outcome.
The assessment is cost-effective.
