Pre-proceedings Assessments

Our psychologists can provide can provide pre-proceedings screening reports

Our psychologists can provide screening reports within pre-proceedings for use by Local Authorities as part of their assessment processes.

Screening reports can provide an indication of an individual’s level of functioning and range of psychological difficulties, along with identifying potential treatment and intervention options.

Screening reports can be completed in a very short timescale due to the use of Graduate Psychologists being available to administer structured psychological tests and semi-structured interviews, under the guidance and supervision of a HCPC Registered Psychologist who will also interview the client.

Screening reports are not produced in place of a full expert witness assessment, but rather to highlight difficulties at an early stage in order to assist the Local Authority with case management and decision making processes.

Rather than using a standardised assessment for all clients, our psychologists will design a bespoke screening assessment in discussion with you which will then permit the assessment to focus upon the exact nature of the issues to be addressed, to help prevent the need for further assessment or assessments focusing upon issues that are not the clients primary problems.

Screening reports will usually be produced within one week of the client assessment appointment.

Examples of screening reports includes assessment for:

  • Learning Disability
  • Autistic Spectrum Disorder
  • Asperger’s Syndrome
  • Personality Disorder
  • Mental Illness
  • Adaptive Functioning
  • Learning Difficulties and Learning Style
  • Substance Misuse Difficulties
  • Attachment Difficulties
  • Memory Difficulties
  • Executive Functioning Difficulties
  • Difficulties with Authority
  • Motivational Difficulties
  • Anger/Aggression/Violence
  • Relationship Issues
  • Domestic Abuse
