Virtual Psychological Assessment

Virtual Psychological Assessment

All referrals into the IPRS Health Recovery Service begins with a Virtual Psychological Assessment. The assessments, conducted by IPRS Health accredited CBT Therapists through either a telephone or video call covering:

  • History
  • Development
  • Presenting problems
  • Formulation including maintaining factors and risk.

The therapist will establish a clear working diagnosis and make recommendations based on clinical need and provide education to the patient person to help them to make an informed decision on their treatment.

The assessment acts as a reassurance for the patient and provides them with the knowledge that there is support and assistance available. In addition, IPRS Health provides a first response / “first aid” for the patient. Upon completion of the Assessment the IPRS Health clinician will refer the patient into either a Step Two, Three or Four Treatment Pathway.
