At times, a client may not be interested or in need of therapy, but instead may desire some variation of a mental health assessment. A common example of this type of an assessment is a chemical dependency evaluation. A client may request an assessment for personal reasons or because it has been required by another entity, such as an employer, or the court system.
In addition, comprehensive psychological evaluations are sometimes performed and written up to provide supporting documentation for particular applications, such as for disability benefits.
The assessment specialists at Elliott Counseling Group are frequently recommended by the local court system and probation offices conduct evaluations and compose reports to meet a client’s conditions of sentencing.
Assessment is also a necessary component of the employer-mandated type of Employee Assistance Program (EAP) services and, to some degree, all other EAP services.
