NUNES, Laura M. et al. Avaliação psicológica de jovens com comportamentos desviantes. Aná. Psicológica [online]. 2015, vol.33, n.2, pp.179-193. ISSN 0870-8231.

Psychological assessment is always a complex process that must attend to the specificities of the individual, the group and the community. Thus, there are no exceptions with regard to populations with deviant behaviors and, within this very large group, we should consider the specificities underlying those behaviors and the context of its manifestation. In this article, and based on a literature review and on the experience gained from the work developed by the Group of Consumptions and Delinquencies (GCD), from the Pedagogical Psychology Clinic (CPP) at the Fernando Pessoa University (UFP), we propose a plan directed to young people with deviant behaviors. That plan must have some flexibility, following the procedures recommended, but regarding the specificities of the evaluation target. This is a proposal that aims to embrace a more idiographic shed, which analyzes of the subjective aspects, calling for techniques such as observation and interview, and also attending to the objective elements, through the use of structured instruments. Depending on the particular circumstances of the case, this proposal for evaluation plan may eventually suffer adjustments, and may be complemented with other evaluation procedures suggested by other protocols.
