Psychological Assessments

Psychological & Neuropsychological Consultation Services

The department’s psychological assessment service provides a full range of psychological and neuropsychological evaluation and consultation services. The service helps to clarify difficult diagnoses as well as treatment and rehabilitation options through the evaluation of cognitive function, emotional health, personality and the biological and behavioral aspects of brain function. Our clinicians are particularly experienced in the evaluation of adult attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, memory problems, dementia, head injuries, depression, psychosis and personality disorders.

A wide array of psychological assessment procedures are used. The specific procedures employed are tailored to the particular purposes of the evaluation, and may include tests of cognitive and intellectual capacities, academic achievement, objective and projective tests of emotional status and personality and tests of neuropsychological functioning. All major psychological and neuropsychological test procedures are available.
