OCD and Testing Assessment
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is an specific form of anxiety that plagues individuals with unwanted and repeated thoughts, actions, and emotions that they cannot control. The extreme end of this particular anxiety behavior forces so much compulsion that if the person tries to not act out on their specific compulsion, the anxiety is unbearable. At Prime Behavioral Health, our licensed professionals are dedicated to meet with you and help you discover where you are going and the best process of how how to get there.
At Prime Behavioral Health, we help turn the impossible to possible through the patient’s own personal process of evaluation. We utilize their unique strengths to help them unpack the unknowns that are plaguing them so that they can begin to identify their fears and overcome them with the tools they already have. Because OCD is about compulsion, and the repetitive action is to generally help avoid or reduce the impact of the obsessive thoughts, our licensed experts are trained to empower the patient to tap into what they already have control over and use that to their advantage.
We do this by following a basic process:
- individually structured interviews with the patient and family
- diagnosis specific rating scales
- neuropsychiatric evaluations (if available)
- clinical observations for diagnosis
Whenever possible, we intentionally utilize other resources including school personnel, counselors, general practitioners and others who know the client well. We employ rating scales and structured conversations so that we can make a thorough diagnosis and treatment plan.
