Hope through Assessments
There are a number of reasons why an individual, couple, or family might desire or need an assessment rather than therapy. For many, an assessment is the precursor to therapy, providing valuable and needed information to focus on the therapy process. For others, an assessment or evaluation may be needed for an adoption application, or for a potential employer or organization to gain information about a potential employee or volunteer. In other circumstances, an evaluation may be helpful for a physician or another medical professional. And relationship assessments are frequently a part of pre-marital counseling.
