Comprehensive ADHD Assessment
If you have noticed ADHD symptoms affecting the quality of your life, or others asking if you have ADHD, a formal assessment is the first step in determining how to help you relieve those symptoms most effectively. No one specific test can determine the diagnosis of ADHD, so psychologists use several types of procedures and measures, including formal written and/or computerized tests and assessing an individual’s developmental and social history.
The process of testing can help you learn about yourself in meaningful ways. Conducting a comprehensive ADHD assessment is worth the time and investment if you have been struggling with symptoms that are affecting your school/work performance or life satisfaction. ADHD evaluation includes a detailed intake interview, self-report measures, review of school records (if appropriate), individually administered intelligence testing, educational achievement testing and mental-health measures. A wide-range of functioning will be assessed in this evaluation, including learning, memory, cognitive functioning, executive functioning, reasoning, social functioning, and verbal and non-verbal communication. A feedback session will conclude the testing, where you will be provided a report with all test findings and appropriate recommendations.
Therapeutic Personality & Diagnostic Assessment for Couples
Understanding personality differences can allow you to more readily appreciate differences between you and the people closest to you. Without understanding, differences can create distance, misunderstanding and miscommunication. Gaining insight can allow you to see those differences as just different ways of “being” vs. judging each other’s unique qualities and ways of moving through the world. We gain compassion and learn to work with each other when we understand where our behaviors come from and that they are not designed to intentionally hurt or frustrate. In fact, many couples can learn to use these differences to build a deeper connection and understanding.
Therapeutic personality assessment and personality testing can be helpful to couples who are either considering marriage or long-term commitment and wish to know each other more deeply, or for couples who are in distress and wanting to explore mutual conflicts. Therapeutic assessment and personality testing can also be a great tool for when a couple is feeling stuck or has reached an impasse in couples therapy by providing fresh insights and perspectives. Exploring each person’s personality type can create a neutral ground–a nonjudgmental language to discuss misunderstandings and irritations, as well as facilitating better communication and providing a new way to conceptualize and address differences in connection preferences, intimacy, lifestyle, managing money and conflict areas.
Therapeutic Assessment for Deeper Understanding of Self
Personality Assessment can be a helpful tool to supplement individual therapy and self-exploration. Gaining a better understanding of your personality can provide answers for how to increase personal growth, balance, and possibilities for further development. The personality is affected by different life stages so understanding your particular personality development can also help you better manage challenges at different life stages including youth, midlife, older adulthood and aging.
