  • Why are you assesses concentration? If you are not a mental health professional, you should not be assessing anything...furthermore, I am not comfortable with the fact that you are seeking this type of information in a forum.

  • on the contrary,all information is good.the writer of the last comment should go and hoard something else.science should be an open book available to anyone who wants to learn.all "professionals"were freely given what they know.knowledge isnt theirs to keep,or to deny to others.perhaps he just wants to sell it.

  • Honestly, I wish I could say that information on assessment should be available to all laymen, however...not true. Assessments need to be done by a person who is completely unbiased and who is professionally trained. In fact, it is now necessary for all mental health professionals to be at a PhD or MD level (having extensive training and supervised experience). I am going through the process right now, and believe me, assessment is nothing to take lightly. Once again, I wish this science was more precise, but because of confounds and a quite bit of subjectively...we need to filter and protect and validity and reliability of these tests.
