Psychological Evaluation, Coon Rapids, MN

One important component of Laurie Grengs’ many services is Psychological Evaluation.  Psychological evaluation can lend insight and new information about patterns of behavior, patterns of thought (which influence behavior), and knowledge about how you experience emotion.  Each relate directly to how we work our way through the world.  When we identify deficiencies or blind spots that affect our ability to experience joy, the help of a qualified counselor like Laurie Grengs can be vital.  When that therapist also has the ability to increase our self-understanding by administering relevant psychological tests, our understanding will improve.  When our self-knowledge improves, we are much more likely to experience greater happiness and joy.

Therapists and counselors often employ psychological assessments, and it may still be true that many people misunderstand how and why psychological assessments are used.  If you are skeptical about the idea of psychological testing based on limited knowledge of, say, the Rorschach (or Inkblot) Test, you should understand several things.  The first is that the Rorschach Test was never intended to reveal the most essential nature of your being—it was intended to help psychotherapists understand your thought patterns better.  The next thing to understand is that modern psychological assessment is itself tested for validity and reliability—in other words, assessments must be able to accurately measure what they set out to measure, or they are of little to no use to your healthcare provider.  Finally, psychological assessments are not intended to do anything other than help you understand yourself better.  Laurie Grengs understands the intricacies of psychological evaluations and can help you apply them to your current situation.
