Neuropsychological Evaluation

Neuropsychological evaluation is intended to provide an objective and quantitative assessment of cognitive functioning of an individual who is experiencing symptoms of a neurological condition. The evaluation consists of the administration of a series of objective tests which are designed to provide specific information about a person’s current cognitive and emotional functioning. A neuropsychologist, who specializes in understanding brain -behavior relationships, administers and interprets the findings.

While the selected tests may vary according to the particular needs of each person, they will usually include tests that assess many different types of thinking (cognition), such as attention, memory, reasoning and visual-spatial sensory and language functioning. In addition, the individual will be asked to complete various questionnaires regarding medical history, current symptoms, and psychological functioning.

The tests are presented in a variety of formats that involve answering questions, drawing, or building objects. The amount of time needed for the testing will vary according to the needs of the situation and the individual’s general ability to undergo these tests. In most cases you should expect the individual to spend several hours (3 to 8).The results are then used to inform the best recommendations for treatment, work and study.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a time-limited, evidence-based, psychotherapeutic approach that aims to influence dysfunctional cognitions, emotions, and behaviors through a goal-oriented, systematic procedure.

CBT was primarily developed through a merging of behavior therapy and cognitive therapy. These two traditions found common ground in focusing on the “here and now” and symptom removal.
Cognitive behavioral therapy is based on the idea that our thoughts cause our feelings and behaviors, not external factors, like people, events, and situations. The benefit of this is that we can change the way we think, feel, or behave even if the situation does not change.

CBT treatments have received empirical support for effective treatment of a variety of clinical conditions, such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, sleep disorders, relationship difficulties, and many others.
