PTSD assessment

What is a PTSD/trauma assessment?

One of our professional PTSD or trauma therapists will work with you to conduct an evaluation and identify the sort of treatment that will be most useful to you as you progress through your mental health journey. Sexual and physical assault, intimate partner violence, conflict, torture, motor vehicle accidents, mass casualty events, medical trauma, catastrophic losses, and childhood abuse or neglect can all be investigated using PTSD/trauma evaluations.

PTSD/trauma is complicated, and it can manifest itself in the following ways:

  • Anxiety

  • Arousal

  • Depression

  • Anger/irritability

  • Intrusive experiences

  • Defensive avoidance

  • Dissociation

  • Sexual concerns

  • Dysfunctional sexual behavior

  • Impaired self-reference

  • Tension reduction behavior


Why is the assessment used?

PTSD/trauma assessments are used to identify an accurate and genuine diagnosis of the condition, as well as its severity. Our therapists will finish the evaluation and then discuss the best treatment plan based on your diagnosis and existing signs and symptoms with you.

The assessment process

To assess PTSD/trauma and associated symptoms, we use precise, objective testing methods. This procedure also includes acquiring background information and conducting an interview. More detailed and extensive tests may be performed depending on the degree of evaluation.

A PTSD/trauma evaluation can be performed as part of a counseling session or as a formal examination. A formal assessment might last anywhere from 1 to 4 hours.
