    Abstract

    The ways in which the experience of conducting a cognitive assessment accelerated my thinking on principles and assumptions of the assessment process will be highlighted. This will be done through examination of the informed consent process, limits of confidentiality and the feedback session of the first-ever assessment I carried out as a trainee educational psychologist in a psychological service. The extent to which the experience of assessing a client pushed me to think critically on this practice will be outlined. A discussion with reference to various psychological and reflective frameworks that guided my practice will permeate the process of resolving cognitive conflicts that arose for me during this particular assessment process.
