Personality Assessment Land

Ety Berant

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter details Ety Berant’s personal and professional life which taught her that clinicians and researchers should incorporate three core components that are intertwined while conducting personality assessment. The three core components are (a) constant familiarization with the most recent empirical and clinical knowledge, (b) integration of all sources of information about our clients, and (c) training of students and young psychologists. Beyond these core components, one cannot underestimate the contribution of training to the maintenance of high level of personality assessment. The training should facilitate our supervisees’ creation of a meaningful depiction of the clients and their inner world while validating their feelings, conflicts, hurt and underscoring their resources. Lastly, the supervision process should reveal the performance-based tools’ power of disclosing our clients’ “life stories” without their deliberate exposure.
