At Focused Concentration, LLC we specialize in diagnostic testing, assessment of psychological and emotional challenges.
What is Diagnostic Testing & Assessment?
If a patient has physical symptoms, a primary care provider may order X-rays or blood tests to understand what is causing the symptoms. The results of the tests help the provider in developing a treatment plan.
Psychological diagnostic testing & assessment serve the same purpose. Psychologists use diagnostic tests and other assessment tools to measure and observe a client's behavior to arrive at diagnosis and guide treatment.
Why Test & Assess?
If a person is having problems at work or school, or in personal relationships, tests can help a psychologist understand whether the patient has issues with anger management or interpersonal skills, or certain personality traits that contribute to the problem. Other tests evaluate whether patients are experiencing emotional disorders such as anxiety or depression.
