Top 5 Competencies required by Psychometric Professionals:

  • Interpersonal Relationships: This basic competency forms part of all the other competencies. Psychological associates normally do their work in the context of interpersonal relationships (parent-child, spouses, boss, employee, etc.). They must therefore be able to establish and maintain a constructive working alliance with their clients, and possess adequate cultural competency.
  • Assessment and Evaluation: A competent professional psychological associate draws on diverse methods of evaluation, determining which methods are best suited to the task at hand, rather than relying solely or primarily on the formalized testing as an automatic response to situations requiring assessment.
  • Intervention and Consultation: The intervention competency is conceptualized as activities that promote, restore, sustain, and/or enhance positive functioning and a sense of wellbeing in clients through preventative, developmental, and/or remedial services. A broad, comprehensive vision of the intervention competency should include explicitly theory as well as the following knowledge and skills.
  • Research: A basic understanding of and respect for the scientific underpinnings of the discipline, knowledge of methods so as to be good consumers of the products of scientific knowledge, and sufficient skills in the conduct of research to be able to develop and carry out projects in a professional context and, in certain cases, in an academic context with the aid of specialized consultants (e.g. statisticians).
  • Ethics and Standards: Professionals accept their obligations, are sensitive to others, and conduct themselves in an ethical manner. They establish professional relationship within the applicable constraints and standards.
