Sycamore Psychological Assessment
If you think you need a psych evaluation, there are many reasons why and no reason to feel ashamed or afraid of. Just like your primary physician will examine your body for a physical malady, a psychological evaluation is for your mind.
Life gets stressful for all of us. There are demands which must be met every day such as work, family, time constraints, relationships, etc. Learning to manage boundaries and obligations that come with living is what we do. Unfortunately, stress can often do a real number on our sanity and how we feel at any given moment.
At Braden Counseling Center, we are happy to let you know that we use the latest and most effective strategies for overcoming the stresses of life. The professional psychiatric services we offer in Sycamore get to the very heart of what is causing you difficulties. We develop a plan for you that will get you results.
Child Psychological Evaluation
We often see children as happy little people without a care in the world. In many cases though, nothing could be further from the truth. Children face doubts and fears in everyday life, just as adults do. However, because they are children, they are less likely to know how to work through such emotions.
For instance, if a child is doing poorly in school, people tend to think they are not working hard enough at their studies. There could be outside factors affecting them though. Divorce, depression, hearing or vision problems, the death of a family member, or bullying are just some of the things that can cause a child to feel boxed into a corner.
The psychological testing and assessment we will give your child in Sycamore will uncover what is going on in their mind. Our providers will help them toward a better tomorrow. Never make the mistake of assuming that a child cannot be helped through psychological evaluation and assistance. We recommend that you offer them the help they need now, just as you would for any physical ailment.
Factors in a Psychological Evaluation
There are components to every psychological evaluation from a counselor at our Sycamore branch. There is:
The Therapist – They need to fully understand their client from the inside out, in order to effectively treat their patients. What is it that has led this person to how they are feeling today?
The Client – Everyone needs to be open and truthful about their treatment in order to move towards healing. Every client should be open to what needs to change in their life in order for successful outcomes.
The Psychiatric Provider – This person needs to know all about medications that can be used to manage challenges of a client if needed.
Trust – Trust needs to be a two-way street. Without trust on both sides, it is difficult, if not impossible, to make good progress.
