Community Members

Adults (18+ years)

Assessment

The PSRC offers comprehensive psychological and neuropsychological assessments for students and members of the community who are 18 years of age and older.

Assessments may include:

  • psychological testing (intelligence, memory, emotional, and projective testing),
  • neuropsychological testing, and
  • testing for learning disabilities, and/or
  • attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

We also sometimes consult with parents and schools about educational accommodations and coping with academic difficulties.

Psychodiagnostic Assessments

Comprehensive psychodiagnostic assessments consist of in-person interviews and self-report rating scales that inquire about the individual’s current emotional and psychological functioning. Based on the findings, a diagnosis may be made and treatment recommendations are provided. Assessment findings and recommendations are presented in-person at scheduled feedback sessions where clients are provided with a detailed report summarizing the findings.

Neuropsychological Assessments

Comprehensive neuropsychological assessments consist of in-person interviews, rating scales, and tests examining a variety of abilities and issues. These may include emotional functioning, memory, attention, reasoning, verbal skills, developmental levels, visual-spatial skills, and academic skills. These measures and methods are used to clarify the diagnosis and current level of functioning. Based on the findings, recommendations pertaining to school, work, and/or daily functioning are made. Assessment findings and recommendations are presented in-person at scheduled feedback sessions where clients are provided with a detailed report summarizing the findings.

Group Therapy

The PSRC offers group psychotherapy programs available to students and community members (18 years of age and older) during the academic year (September to April).  Group therapy can be particularly effective, as there is opportunity to reduce a sense of isolation and alienation, and to benefit from the therapist as well as from other group members. Groups typically involve 6 – 10 people, and meet on a weekly basis for 90 minutes.  Individuals can self-refer (see links to current flyers for contact information) to arrange for an individual intake meeting prior to the start of the group.

Current group offerings are:

Living Fully.  A Group for OCD.  An 8-week group therapy program for individuals struggling with symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.  

Dealing with Anger. A Therapy Group.  An 8-week group therapy program for individuals struggling with how to deal effectively with anger.  

 

Children and Adolescents (6 to 17 years)

Assessment

The PSRC offers comprehensive psychological, psychoeducational, and neuropsychological assessments for children and adolescents covering a wide range of concerns ranging from Learning Disorders, and Attention Deficit & Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) evaluations. We also provide assessments for mood and anxiety disorders. Comprehensive assessments assist with diagnostic clarification, treatment recommendations and educational accommodations.

Our comprehensive multimethod assessments include thorough in-person interviews, self-report and observer-report rating scales, and standardized cognitive tests. Based on the findings of the assessment, we provide recommendations for helping clients manage their difficulties. Assessment results are provided in-person in a scheduled feedback session and clients are provided with a detailed report summarizing the findings.
