Clinical psychologists identify emotional and mental behaviour through observation, interviews and tests with a view to diagnosing existing or potential disorders.

Dan-Asabe made the call in an interview with newsmen in Bauchi on Tuesday, saying recent developments have necessitated checks on people’s mentality.

He said,

“The rampant instances of rape have caused abnormal sexual behaviour which a normal and sensible human cannot indulge in. Those who indulge in rape and drug abuse need to undergo psychometric tests; their thinking capacities need to be tested.”
