The 3 Steps for Psychological Evaluation
Remote Assessment Also Available!
One of our Seoul Counseling Center psychologists will correspond with you via email, by phone, or in-person to determine which testing areas are needed.
You will visit our Center to complete the evaluation based on the pre-screening consultation. Depending on the area(s) of concern, the evaluation may include the following types of tasks, which may be completed in a single day, or across multiple days:
- Computer-based tasks
- Cognitive & memory tasks
- Behavioral performance tasks
- Clinical questionnaires
- Clinical interviews
Seoul Counseling Center’s psychologist will meet with you after a few weeks in a 50-minute meeting to: a) review and explain the results; and b) explain all relevant service recommendations and follow-up support options for you based on the evaluation.
The Costs of a Psychological Evaluation
The Psychological Evaluation options above are typically done as part of a full-battery assessment, involving a variety of standardized assessments and information collected from multiple informants.
For example, an in-person client evaluation can take from 3 to 8 hours, with additional information gathering from other informants taking an additional 4-6 hours. Scoring assessments, interpreting results, formulating problem conceptualization, writing a report, and creating customized service recommendations can take a further 6-8 hours. This comprehensive evaluation process thus ranges from 10 to over 25 hours for our psychologist, so evaluation fees vary depending on which assessments are done. Please contact us for details.
