Whether it is for employment, legal or personal purposes, at Integral Psychological Services we can provide an informed and evidence-based evaluation for either your lawyer or employment, as well as to help determine your treatment needs. Psychological evaluation is strongly recommended in response to personal and physical injury situations, as it can assist lawyers by documenting the specific psychological conditions, the severity of problems, the reality of the individual’s adjustment circumstances, and the need for psychological treatments, as well as recommendations for additional treatment and further consultation.
Regarding treatment, post-accident therapy can be very beneficial in helping individuals begin to achieve improved adjustment and maximum recovery for the person to get their life, and mental health back on track, or to help them get back to work.
Our clinical evaluation experience includes psychological injuries associated with a variety of injury-related accidents that include motor vehicle, pedestrian, as well as job-related accidents or incidents, as well as medical or related malpractice cases.
