What Makes a Good Assessment of Capacity?

26 April 2019

This document was produced by the Mental Capacity Advisory Group, a sub-group of the British Psychological Society’s Professional Practice Board and has involved cross-speciality input covering a broad array of contexts in which Mental Capacity Act (MCA ) assessments may be completed by psychologists.

This document sets out to inform and support psychologists to make informed, sound clinical judgements and decisions across a range of sometimes very different situations where a client’s capacity to make their own decisions is being questioned.
