Psychological Testing and Evaluation

Psychological testing and evaluation, sometimes called psychological assessment, involves a series of tests that help a qualified therapist determine the cause of mental health symptoms. The goal of this type of testing is to identify the correct diagnosis and provide the appropriate treatment. The underlying cause of the problems someone is facing isn't always clear and tests can help provide clarity for a wide variety of issues. For example, if a child is struggling in school, they may undergo tests for learning disabilities. Evaluations can also help identify things like personality traits, anger management issues, anxiety, depression, interpersonal skills, memory, ADHD and more. If you are interested in psychological tests and evaluation, contact one of TherapyDen’s experts today.

Often the symptoms of a psychological disorder are obvious, such as when a child experiences academic and social problems at school, or an adult struggles to maintain personal and professional relationships due to anger issues, but the cause of the problem is not always clear. Psychological testing and evaluation consists of a series of tests that help determine the cause of psychological symptoms and disorders, to determine the correct diagnosis and follow up with the appropriate treatment.
