Crosspoint Wellness's Comprehensive Assessment takes the whole person into account, and investigates all areas of the person.
A comprehensive assessment helps you to:
You are unique. Every brain is uniquely structured and each region of the brain acts and reacts interactively with every other part of the brain. Your brain has an influence as to your style of thought, your emotional state and your behavior patterns.
A neuropsychological assessment evaluates how your brain is functioning and helps clarify the relationship between your brain and your behavior and between your brain and your memory, attention, language, and motor skills. It can also clarify important processes that can clarify why you make the decisions and take the actions that you do, your strengths and weaknesses and other important factors that affect your day-to-day functioning.

Comprehensive Assessment + Efficient Treatment = Effective Recovery
Psychodiagnostic assessment is a specialized diagnostic process that identifies and quantifies the extent to which an individual’s psychological make-up is influencing their overall presentation. It disects outwardly confusing clinical presentations and provides objective data on specific psychological factors of an individual thereby enhancing diagnostic accuracy. Some situations in which psychodiagnostic assessment can be particularly helpful are:
· Preoperative psychological evaluation for bariatric surgery or organ transplant
· Identifying co-occurring disorders
· Mood or anxiety disorders
· Psychiatric differential diagnosis and treatment recommendations
· Psychological assessment to return-to-work in a sensitive position
Spiritual and Cultural assessment are the processes by which the various factors of an individual’s spirituality and cultural make-up influence their overall presentation. The determination of spiritual needs and resources, evaluation of the impact of beliefs and culture on treatment outcomes and decisions, and discovery of barriers to treatment are all addressed through this aspect of a Comprehensive Assessment.
Some individuals deal with sleep difficulties, pain that does not go away, trauma and other challenging situations that are often overlooked in a standard assessment. These challenges can be debilitating and significantly detract from treatment adherence, efficacy of interventions and overall quality of life.
Examining these issues during the assessment process and treatment planning give individuals and their clinicians a clear and complete picture and allow all aspects of treatment to be addressed.
Crosspoint Wellness reports and treatment plans are written in clear language and are designed to answer specific referral questions, provide intervention support and prioritize treatment goals. The various aspects of the Comprehensive Assessment are integrated and combined with recommendations specific to the patient and their needs. The highest likelihood of success is achieved when assessment results are integrated into treatment planning.
Remediation of cognitive deficits aims to improve cognitive processes (language, attention, memory, executive function, social cognition or meta-cognition) with the goal of long-standing change and generalization to all aspects of daily life.
Through a variety of interventions and establishment of routines aimed at learning strategies to compensate for cognitive challenges, cognitive remediation services teach individuals to compete utilizing their strengths. Some areas of intervention include:
Education regarding the specific strengths and weaknesses is combined with training in processes, strategies and daily activities. Cognitive Remediation includes the use of computer-based applications, workbook activities and hands-on tasks with guidance from the cognitive remediation specialist.
