Social-Emotional Functioning & Personality:
A leading contemporary personality theorist, Theodore Millon, offers a bioevolutionary theory of personality development in which personality formation is viewed as a process of learned strategies used to secure positive reinforcement and minimize punishment. According to this theory, maladaptive personality styles are shaped by inflexible approaches to seeking survival aims.
Psychological assessment concerned with social-emotional problems and personality development should be based in theory that is supported by research. Disorders are typically defined by the severity and number of presenting symptoms. Diagnostic interviews are typically utilized to identify these variables. Additionally, objective assessment tools provide a comparison with the general population to help judge the severity of the symptoms. Objective measures also provide a systematic approach to matching severe enough symptoms with the known criteria for any given disorder. The use of projective techniques can add additional insight to underlying thoughts and feelings, and often compliment the objective approach by imparting the individual’s unique “voice” on the assessment. A comprehensive evaluation provides diagnostic clarity for social-emotional or personality factors that might contribute to impaired functioning and offers recommendations that are likely to help resolve and/or manage the problem.
