The evaluation also includes personality and behavior measures, cognitive and achievement measures, and sexual behavior-specific measures. We use the most up-to-date risk assessment tools to assess the individual’s risk for reengagement in problematic sexual behaviors. Psychosexual evaluations can take up to 6-8 hours in the office.
Neuropsychological Evaluations: This type of evaluation is typically intended for individuals who have a history of head/brain injury, lack of oxygen at birth, seizures, Alzheimer’s, and/or dementia and assess the deterioration of cognitive functioning due to the disease or injury. Neuropsychological tests evaluate functioning in a number of areas including: intelligence, executive functions (such as planning, abstraction, conceptualization), attention, memory, language, perception, sensorimotor functions, motivation, mood state and emotion, quality of life, and personality styles. The areas addressed in an individual’s evaluation are determined by the referral question (what the referring doctor and patient wants to know), patient’s complaints and symptoms, and observations made during interview and test administration.
