Description

In this interview, Dr. Raja David provides a deep dive into Therapeutic Assessment. Dr. David trained extensively with the creator of the Therapeutic Assessment model, Dr. Stephen Finn. This discussion is broken down into two parts. In the first, Dr. David provides an overview of what Therapeutic Assessment is and how it differs from standard "information gathering" assessments, and goes into detail about goals, success factors, and the methodology he employs for preparing for, conducting, and completing a Therapeutic Assessment. The second part is a case study where Dr. David uses a concrete example to bring the concepts to life.

Some of the highlights of this interview include:

  • The principals of Therapeutic Assessment as originally defined by Dr. Stephen Finn
  • How to prepare for a Therapeutic Assessment
  • The question-based approach Dr. David uses to identify the key issues the client wants to address
  • The assessments commonly used, as well as a unique approach employed to get meta-information about the tests
  • The conclusion of the Therapeutic Assessment process which uses a personalized letter rather than a standard report
  • A case study reviewing the Therapeutic Assessment of "Sophie" with detailed examples of each step

Target audience:  Psychologists, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, social workers, addiction counselors, nurses.

This CE program is designated as intermediate.
