Psychological Testing Services – Counselors and Therapists in Knoxville

Have you considered going to therapy, but aren’t sure if you need it? Or perhaps you think you might have ADHD or another mental health issue, but you need to know for certain. Psychological testing is an excellent way to determine if you could benefit from therapy. Thriveworks Atlantis offers psychological testing for a wide variety of applications.

Psychological Testing — What Is It and Who Is It For?

If you’ve ever watched a movie where somebody is taking the ink blot test, you’ve seen psychological testing in action. This is called the Rorschach Test, a form of psychological testing used to evaluate personality. It’s just one of many psychological tests available.

Psychological testing is used to evaluate certain traits of a person, such as behavior and personality. The results can be used for a variety of purposes — preparing a person for therapy, helping someone pick a career, measuring intelligence, identifying learning disabilities.

Other types of psychological testing:

  • ADHD testing and assessment
  • Accommodations for standardized tests (GRE, SAT, ACT, etc.)
  • Educational testing
  • Career testing
  • IQ testing
  • Neuropsychological testing
  • Learning disabilities testing

Psychological testing is often used in conjunction with psychological assessment, which is a more holistic approach to evaluating an individual’s behavior and personality. A common method of assessment is the clinical interview.

Take the Guesswork out of Finding Your Ideal Job

One useful form of psychological testing is career assessment. It measures your skills and talents, and can help you zero in on the career that’s right for you. Some people spend their whole lives searching for the right career, but career assessment can serve as a shortcut to finding fulfilling work. Career assessment is also a great segue to career counseling, which can help you learn the skills you need to take your career to the next level.

Thriveworks Knoxville Psychological Testing Can Help Prepare You for Therapy

When you’re struggling with a mental health issue, it’s important to know exactly what you’re dealing with. Effective treatment starts with identifying the problem. With the wealth of information available on the Internet, it can be tempting to try to make a self-diagnosis. But guessing is never recommended when your mental well-being is on the line. Thriveworks Knoxville can bring you peace of mind by providing you with a professional psychological assessment.
