Psychological Assessments

 

  • Psychological testing can help enhance your understanding of your personality and cognitive functioning and often works well as an adjunct to counseling.
  • We are not able to provide diagnostic testing for the purposes of determining disability or recommending accommodations. Please contact the ARC for diagnostic psycho-educational assessments. We are also not able to do evaluations for legal matters or court cases.
  • Testing services are free of charge for enrolled University of Miami students.
  • Testing appointments are usually scheduled for 2 hours at a time. The entire process usually takes 6-8 hours depending on the questions you are looking to address. The process begins with a thorough interview to determine your needs. Examiners use questionnaires, puzzles, storytelling, problem-solving, and/or writing to help answer your questions.
  • After all testing sessions are complete, you can expect to discuss the results and receive feedback from your examiner in 4-6 weeks.
  • If you are interested in psychological testing, you may discuss it with your Counseling Center counselor.
