Psychological Assessments & Testing


What is a psychological assessment?

A psychological assessment is a formal process through which psychologists observe and measure behaviour so as to arrive at a treatment plan. Usually, psychologists know what a person is struggling with because of their symptoms. However, when this is unclear, a psychological assessment can help to clarify the situation. The assessment consists of a clinical interview, review of records, observational data, psychological tests, and feedback.

How long does it take to complete the process of undergoing an assessment/test?

There is no ‘one size fits all,’ and tests are chosen for each individual client. The assessment is usually carried out over two to three sessions, with each session lasting about two to three hours. Smaller assessments may take less time. Certain tests are timed so it all depends on what you have opted for.

Who can perform psychological testing? What credentials do they need?

Psychological assessment and testing is conducted by professionals having appropriate training and credentials to perform testing. This is often someone who is licensed, has completed their majors or doctorate and has training in the area of psychological testing. Testing performed by unlicensed individuals or those still in training and are supervised by a licensed practitioner.

How much does the psychological assessment cost?

Costs vary depending on the length and type of the assessment/test. After an initial conversation, we should be able to give you an estimate of the cost.

Is psychological assessment & testing covered by insurance?
