Psychological Assessment 

Definition:

Psychological assessment (non-forensic or neuropsychological) can be useful to help an individual gain insight into personality and/or cognitive functioning and how these factors may affect one's daily life. Psychological testing is also a useful component of pre-surgical evaluation to help determine whether one is psychologically and/or cognitively ready for such a procedure. 


What to expect:

 

The purpose of testing will be explained thoroughly, along with limits of confidentiality. Paper-and-pencil, and perhaps computerized, tests will be administered over the course of one or more sessions. Feedback about your performance, and specific implications for your life, as well as recommendations for optimal functioning, will be offered.
