Assessments for Children, Adolescents and Adults
Assessments are an essential component to any clinical service. Typically, assessments involve many areas of functioning, inclusive of (but not limited to) family history, academic/cognitive functioing, employment, interpersonal skills, emotional health/functioning, behavioural/delinquency issues, developmental issues, and strengths/risks. Comprehensive assessments allow therapists to understand the unique strengths, risks, and treatment needs of children, youth, and adults, and are often completed before commencing counselling/treatment with individuals. Dr. Schuler has extensive training and professional experience conducting assessments, and routinely presents his comprehensive findings to individuals, families, Child Welfare, Youth Justice/Probation, residential treatment programs, and other health-care programs/professionals.
