The Shedler-Westen Assessment Procedure or SWAP is a unique psychological test for personality assessment and clinical case formulation. It is completed by clinicians, not patients. SWAP is based on over 16 years of scientific research. Its validity is documented in more than 90 scholarly articles in premier scientific journals including American Psychologist and The American Journal of Psychiatry. SWAP has been translated into fourteen languages.
SWAP combines your clinical insight with state-of-the-art science. It relies on clinicians to do what clinicians do best: describe the patients they know. It relies on psychometric and statistical methods to do what they do best: combine information in optimal ways to derive accurate and psychologically rich diagnostic formulations. The result is a unique assessment tool that illuminates both the surface and depth of personality.
