The pragmatic challenge posed by the forum of completing an assessment within a 60 to 90 minute time limit challenges us to think about the theoretical perspectives that underlie our evaluation procedures. Hopefully, it will lead us to question some of our procedures in light of new theories and clinical advances and to develop stronger rationales for and greater understanding of "tried and true" procedures.
