Psychological Evaluations

Court Ordered & Disability Psychological Evaluations

 Evaluations are conducted for:

  • Attorneys/insurance companies seeking a diagnosis and a degree of functional impairment assessment
  • Independent Medical Examinations (IME)
  • Personal injury cases following an injury or accident
  • Screening for the presence/absence of specific diagnosis that could affect employment, as an entrance requirement for specific occupations such as police work (police academy candidates), church leadership positions, and security.

Comprehensive Psychological Evaluations

Psychological evaluations offer insight as to the severity of a particular disturbance and of the capacity for adequate functioning. A comprehensive psychological evaluation for a child or adult is typically used  to confirm or modify the impressions formed by referring therapists through less structured interactions in therapy. Psychological assessments can identify needs in therapy, highlight issues that may come up in treatment, recommend particular forms of intervention, and offer guidance about potential outcomes of treatment.
