Abel Screening AASI-3

The AASI-3 and Psychological Assessments

The Abel Assessment for sexual interest-3(AASI-3) is an empirically-validated, comprehensive evaluation and treatment system that clinicians can add to their existing psychological assessments. The AASI-3 can be used with adult men and women with sexual behavior problems. It is specifically designed to measure a client’s sexual interest and to obtain information regarding involvement in a number of abusive or problematic sexual behaviors.

The AASI-3 provides the clinician with tools to enhance their psychological assessments, including; baseline data, treatment planning guidance, and evaluation of the client’s progress throughout the treatment process. The AASI-3 provides a range of valuable information organized in one detailed report. This report allows the clinician to expand his psychosexual assessments and can aid in risk assessment. The AASI-3 is available in English and Spanish.

Each AASI-3 report includes 6 objective measures and 10 self-report measures:
