Sexual Behavioral Assessment-Youth

OVERVIEW
In a Sexual Behavioral Assessment a youth client will be required to complete the following:

  • Sexual history interview. Dr. Hawks will gather a sexual history from the client during a face-to-face interview. The interview gathers information about topics such as masturbation and pornography.
  • Sentence Completion Test. This is a projective personality test. The client is given a list of partial sentences and asked to complete the various phrases. There are several phrases that deal directly with sexual issues.

  • Sexual Cognitions Test. This test lists over 30 sexual statements. The client reads the statement and marks the statement as being "true" or "false."

These tests are standardized with guidelines monitoring their administration, scoring and interpretation. It is important that the client have adequate reading abilities to complete the written tests. Please inform Dr. Hawks if the client has any problems in reading English.
