The 3 Steps for Psychological Evaluation
Remote Assessment also available!
One of our Seoul Counseling Center Psychologists will discuss with you via email, on the phone, on 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
Our Seoul Counseling Center Psychologist will meet with you a few weeks later for a 50-minute results meeting to (a) review and explain the results, and (b) explain all relevant treatment 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, the in-person evaluation with the client can vary from 3-8 hours, with additional information gathering from other informants taking an additional 4-6 hours. Scoring assessments, interpreting results, formulating diagnoses, writing up the report, and creating customized treatment recommendations can take an additional 6-8 hours. This comprehensive evaluation process can thus range from 10 to 25+ hours for the Psychologist. The evaluation fees thus vary, depending on which assessments are completed.
