Holden Psychological Screening Inventory

Ronald R. Holden, Ph.D.


The HPSI is a self-report screening instrument that examines the same underlying dimensions as longer measures of psychopathology, but does it in approximately five minutes. It quantifies traditional classes of psychopathology, identifies traditional classes of psychopathology, identifies general areas that warrant further examination, and measures change in symptoms over time when administered during and after treatment.

How to Use the Assessment
The HPSI is available in handscored, online, and software format. With the handscored format, you use MHS QuikScore™ Forms to conveniently administer and score the HPSI. With the online and software formats, you can instantly generate a Profile Report after the respondent has completed the assessment.
