Evidence Based Practice

The effectiveness of the Conflict Analysis Battery has been evaluated consistently over the last twenty years. With each new study improvements have been made, furthering the refinement of the program. Recent studies include evaluations of the online version of the Conflict Analysis Battery’s reliability, validity, and efficacy. Results indicate that the program successfully functions as both a diagnostic and therapeutic experience, comparing favorably with conventional personality assessments and therepeutic interventions.

The theoretical foundations of the Conflict Analysis Battery are grounded on a humanistic conception of science. Inspired by Aristotelean logic, psychodynamic methods, psychometric rigor, and critical theory’s sensitivities, the CAB is a tool to represent the whole person.

The Conflict Analysis Battery is designed to optimally trigger insight and self-understanding. Coupling psychological and creativity based assessment models, the CAB allows individuals to understand themselves and their relational worlds.

The CAB features 10 different tests, including the following instruments:

The Relational Modality Evaluation Scale is a Likert-rated report that identifies the dimensions of one’s relational patterns. Rather than pathologizing, this test presents wellness diagnosis, and frames utilization of the rest of the battery.

The Animal Metaphor Test is a creativity profile that uses a simple metaphor to explore the self. The test is designed to gradually become more self-focused, allowing the test-taker to become increasingly comfortably being self-analytical.

The CAB was designed through 30 years of clinical research. Current research on the CAB is directed by Albert Levis, MD, and Maxwell Levis, MTS.
