Psychodiagnostic Assessments In Surrey, BC

Psychodiagnostic Assessments (mental health disorders) – age 6+

A psychodiagnostic assessment is a collaborative process between you, your child and the psychologist, that can help figure out specific areas of mental health or daily functioning that might be challenging for you or your child. The assessment will focus on understanding formal thought processes, emotional and personality functioning in order to assist in the planning of appropriate treatments (including school accommodations, counselling or therapy). You or your child may receive a diagnosis (or multiple diagnoses) of mental health disorders through a psychodiagnostic assessment.

Psychodiagnostic assessments can be conducted completely virtually or in-person, based on your own personal preference.

The following types of disorders can be assessed during a psychodiagnostic assessment:

  • Depressive Disorders (e.g., major depressive disorder, persistent depressive disorder)
  • Anxiety disorders (e.g., generalized anxiety, social anxiety, separation anxiety)
  • Bipolar disorders
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorders
  • Personality disorders (e.g., borderline personality disorder)
  • Conduct disorders (e.g., oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorder)
  • Eating disorders (e.g., anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa)
  • Psychotic disorders (e.g., schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder)
  • Trauma disorders (e.g., post-traumatic stress disorder)
  • Substance-related and Addictive disorders
  • Somatic symptom disorders
  • Dissociative disorders

The process of a psychodiagnostic assessment includes the following:

3 hours interview (in-person or virtual, involving both parent and child for child/adolescent assessments)

  • 1.5 hour clinical interview
  • 1.5 hour structured interview
    30 min feedback session (in-person or virtual)

Fees: The base fee for psychodiagnostic assessments will cover the assessment and diagnosis of any mental health disorders. If you would like a psychodiagnostic assessment (for mental health disorders) to be added onto another type of assessment (e.g., psychoeducational assessment for neurodevelopmental disorders), your assessment fee will be calculated by an hourly rate, covering testing for all types of symptoms. This will help keep your costs lower than seeking multiple different types of assessments.

The psychologist will discuss an individualized assessment plan with you in your first session, including estimated fees. For more immediate information on the base rate fees for psychodiagnostic assessments, please contact our clinic administrators at 604-229-4887.
