Psychological Assessments are standardized measurements we use at Restoration to evaluate intellectual, behavioral, and psychological well-being. This information is used to develop a comprehensive treatment plan best suited for our clients’ needs.
The following is an example of one of the many different psychomeasurements used to assess one’s neurological function in a psychological assessment. This psychomeasurement is used to assess attention and memory. Take a couple of minutes to try this free assessment measurement out by clicking on the below link.
Personality – This assessment provides information concerning the individual’s ability to handle stress and determine if there might be impairments in the client’s daily life, such as anxiety or depression. The clinician will also provide recommendations on how to improve one’s emotional state.
Neuropsychological – This assessment measures one’s attention, language, memory, executive functioning, and intelligence. Strengths and weakness are identified and suggestions are given on ways to improve one’s cognitive abilities.
Educational – This assessment measures an individual’s Intellectual Quotient (IQ) and academic achievement levels. The results provide insight on what academic environment and teaching techniques might provide an optimal learning experience.
Behavioral – This assessment considers information from multiple sources and psycho-measures to identify factors that contribute to the undesirable behaviors. Once the factors are identified, a comprehensive treatment plan is developed to reduce the behavior. People who typically benefit from a behavioral assessment include those who demonstrate symptoms of ADHD, display defiant behavior, or struggle with substance abuse.
Relational – This assessment is useful for couples considering marriage along with married couples and families wanting to strengthen their relationships.
Career – This assessment can be useful for teenagers, young adults, and people contemplating a mid-life career change.
Here are the three steps to Restoration’s Psychological Assessments
During the 45-minute interview, a conversation between the patient and clinician occurs. The aim of this conversation is to discuss the purpose of the assessment and identify the methods to be used during the assessment. Factors that help determine the purpose of the assessment include: the clients personal history, relationships, education, career and health. At the conclusion of the interview an appointment is made to administer the psychological measurements.
Administration of the Measurements
The administration can take anywhere from a couple of hours to a couple of days, depending of the nature and purpose of the assessments. These measurements are used to gather objective data regarding an individual’s well-being. When the measurements are completed, the clinician will score and interpret the information that was gathered.
This 45-minute appointment is generally scheduled 7 to 14 days after the measurements were administered. During the feedback session, the patient is given verbal and written feedback on the clinician’s findings and treatment recommendations are provided.
