Testing -- Psychological Evaluation
(See also: Cell-Friendly Testing Page)
I can provide psychological testing, including personality testing, IQ and substance abuse testing.
Personality testing includes the MMPI-2 and some others, including the Beck Depression Inventory.
The IQ test is the Shipley
The substance abuse testing includes the SASSI and the ASI.
In addition, there is a psychosocial interview involved.
When you request testing, if you were referred by an authority, please specify exactly what kind of testing you want done.
Some referrers may be unclear as to what they want. If they say "psychiatric exam," please know that an actual psychiatrist (a medical doctor) does not have time to do all the above testing, and also is typically not trained to do that. He generally sees a new patient for 30 minutes, and then sees him/her once a month, generally prescribing medications, for 15 minutes, for which he receives a high price. Spending two or three hours with a patient would be cost prohibitive. Then, taking 8-12 hours to score the tests would also be very expensive.
However, he may ask "Who are you? Where are you? What day is this? Why are you here? What did you have for breakfast? Name three presidents. Remember 3 words I give you," and other such questions. I generally do not, because I already know you could make and keep an appointment and find the office on your own. But I could if requested.
