Psychological evaluation and personality assessment can accelerate treatment progress by aiding in the development of therapeutic goals and more effective treatment plans.
Psychological evaluation & personality assessment can help clients and their psychologist get to the “heart of the matter” more quickly. And, it can help clients and clinicians develop a common language for understanding each client’s strengths and areas for further development.
A type of psychological evaluation & personality assessment we employ at CPA is Therapeutic Psychological Assessment (TPA). Therapeutic Psychological Assessment is similar to traditional psychological assessment but it differs in its emphasis on collaboration with the client and focusing on how to create positive change for clients. The TPA model is not as focused on diagnosis and instead focuses on identifying barriers to positive change and ways to remove those barriers. TPA can be helpful for individuals without a specific diagnosis but who want to improve their lives.
At CPA, psychological evaluation and/or therapeutic psychological assessment are frequently implemented as a “first step” in the treatment process and can highlight areas of concern or strength that may warrant further conversation.
Psychological evaluation & therapeutic psychological assessment can provide important information about an individual’s:
Following the psychological evaluation, your psychologist will meet with you to discuss the results. Together, you and your clinician will discuss how that information can be incorporated into your therapeutic work together.
No. Neuropsychological evaluation and assessment is more focused on cognitive aspects of functioning and brain-behavior relationships. Neuropsychological testing is typically the approach used for diagnosing ADHD and Learning Disabilities such as Dyslexia in adults and children.
