The Relationship Centre: Assessments and Reports
The Relationship Centre can complete and provide psychological assessments, medico-legal reports, and family court reports. These reports frequently form the basis of expert evidence in a court or other tribunal. They are commonly requested by legal representations to assess psychological injury or impairment, prognosis and recommended treatment.
These psychological assessments include comprehensive background information to identify the factors relevant to the situation and provide clear scientifically-based conclusions and practical recommendations. A two-hour interview is the first step in the assessment process and sometimes a follow-up session on a different day is required. Psychometric scales may be required. Should no further consultation be necessary, the report will be issued within 30 days from the final assessment date.
Family court reports are often used in child custody disputes and form a fundamental role in assessing the family unit and making expert recommendations that are in the child's best interest. This assessment and report will include details regarding family relationships and attachment with caregivers and siblings, strengths and weakness, the co-parental relationship, and parenting capacity of each individual parent.
