Assessment

Psychological assessment is a process of understanding the nature of an issue and determining the best way to address it though the use of a formal interview and standardized psychological tests. Campanula Psychological Services offers the following types of assessments for adults (18 and over):

1. Personality assessment.

Personality assessments typically focus on clarifying the diagnosis of mental health challenges and identifying contributing factors, leading to more realistic and achievable treatment and recovery goals. This type of assessment can be especially helpful for individuals whose mood or anxiety disorders have only partially improved with standard treatments. Personality testing can also help clarify the nature of persistent or repetitive challenges such as interpersonal problems or struggles with motivation, and can provide valuable guidance in life and career planning. Individuals seeking insight for the purpose of personal growth may find answers and inspiration in the results of a personality assessment.

2. Cognitive assessment.

Cognitive assessment is the measurement of various mental processes such as memory, reasoning, problem solving ability and verbal skills.  Tests of cognitive functioning can be used for screening for dementia, brain injury and other neurocognitive disorders and may provide a first step before investing in full neuropsychological or neurological assessment. Campanula is currently offering assessment of memory and dementia screening (memory and verbal fluency). Other types of cognitive assessment may be available on request.

Supervision

Supervision for provisional psychologists towards registration with the College of Alberta Psychologists (CAP) is based on the competencies set out in CAP’s Supervision Manual.

Competency-based supervision is defined as an approach that explicitly identifies the knowledge, skills, and values that are assembled to form a clinical competency and develops learning strategies and evaluation procedures to meet criterion-referenced competence standards in keeping with evidence-based practices and requirements of the local clinical setting. (Falender, C.A. & Shafranske, E.P. 2007. Competence in competency-based supervision practice: Construct and application. Professional Psychology: Research and practice. Vol 38, No. 3, 232-240).

One of the goals of supervision is to develop competency in self-reflection and self-evaluation, so that the newly registered psychologist can function as their own supervisor as their career progresses. Part of competence is knowing what you don’t know; when to seek out education, consultation or further supervision. Another goal is to develop the skills and confidence to provide services in an ethical and caring way.
