Types of Psychological and Diagnostic Testing

While the terms sound a bit intimidating, testing includes interviews, informal tests, surveys, questionnaires, and other assessments. Some of the tests at Creative Care include:

  • Biopsychosocial Evaluation
  • Mental Status Evaluation (MSE)
  • Initial Psychiatric Evaluation
  • Nursing evaluation
  • Record Review
  • Symptom Distress (OQ45.2), Depression (PHQ-9), and Attachment (ECR) questionnaires
  • MMPI, Millon, or PAI

The biopsychosocial evaluation, for example, assesses the biological, psychological, and social factors that may be contributing to the problems a client is experiencing. We take a look at medical history, education level and work environment, any family or marriage concerns, and more to best identify a client’s needs.
