If a person is experiencing problems at work, in school, or with maintaining relationships, clinical testing can help understand what emotions or personality traits may be contributing to their problem. Psychological tests and assessments allow a clinician to understand the nature of unclear or complex problems, as well as ways to offer effective treatment. Georgetown Psychology offers psychological evaluations to assist individuals and, in many cases, their treating therapists and psychiatrists in clarifying diagnosis and treatment recommendations. Testing combines both objective and projective tests to gain information regarding underlying emotional and personality patterns that may be getting in your way. This can be especially helpful when clients and/or treatment providers are feeling stuck and require additional information to proceed in the most effective manner. For some clients, this may be part of a larger evaluation to assess for other conditions, such as ADHD and learning disabilities, which may be contributing their mental health problems. For others, the focus is strictly on psychological/ emotional functioning and behavior, such as anxiety or depression.
