Psychological Assessment and Treatment

Psychological Assessment and Treatment

Psychological Assessment in Oakville

Psychological assessments sound intimidating, but they are designed to determine your strengths and weaknesses as well as any underlying mental issues. They are similar to medical tests. But the difference is, they focus on the person’s mental well-being. Psychological Assessments are used for several purposes, including:

  • Understand the cause of a symptom
  • Identify learning disabilities
  • Test skills, memory, reaction time, and dexterity
  • Diagnose mental health conditions, such as brain injuries
  • Provide treatment options after a motor vehicle accident (MVA)
  • Prepare a Driving Anxiety Plan

Through a mental health assessment, specialists can identify and understand a person’s behavior. They can also evaluate whether the person is experiencing depression or other emotional disorders.

Psychological Evaluation in Oakville

Your psychological assessment starts with an interview followed by some questionnaires and activities to help our psychologist develop a treatment plan. During the interview, you will be asked personal questions including:

  • Things that are bothering you. These might include things that cause you sleepless nights, stress, anxiety, and relationship issues.
  • Medications you’re taking. A lot of medications can cause hormonal imbalances that affect your mental health.
  • Recent trauma you might have experienced (including motor vehicle accidents)
  • Drug or alcohol consumption
  • Your life in general. Some major life changes can affect a person’s mental health
