Child Psychological Evaluation
Living through stressful times is difficult enough for adults. For children, it can be much more challenging, as they are not equipped with past experiences to make sense of their situation. As a result, children often act out.
When a child falls behind in school, it is many people’s first inclination to suggest that they are lazy with schoolwork and should work harder. The problem could go far beyond laziness, however. Issues such as parental divorce, a death of a family member, vision or hearing problems, or bullying might be the cause of a child’s out-of-character or antisocial behavior. Our psychological testing and assessment providers in Geneva will get them the help they need now.
Components of a Psychological Evaluation
A psychological evaluation at our Geneva location has numerous components. These include:
The Therapist – This person must understand the client fully. He or she must learn what has led their client into the trouble they are dealing with, and what methods will best to help.
The Client – Every patient must be open and truthful about their life. He or she should explore what has led them to this moment and be willing to accept positive changes.
The Psychiatric Provider – This person is responsible for understanding which psychiatric medication might be needed to treat their client.
Trust – This is a two-way street. Both sides will need to spend time and effort focused on healing. For both, patience and perseverance reap great rewards.
