Emerge Psychological Services have significant experience in undertaking individual assessments.

You may be a parent concerned about your child or young adults’ behaviour, or a professional or organisation requiring additional support and direction regarding a young adult you are working with. Emerge Psychological Services will support you in assessing the function and drivers for the behaviour in question, from which recommendations for the effective management and intervention to support positive behavioural change can be made.

Whether you require an assessment to inform intervention planning (see below) or as a standalone piece of work to help guide complex case management arrangements, EPS can support you.

A formulation driven, integrative approach is taken to any assessment undertaken, ensuring the individual is at the centre.  Information is sourced from a variety of places to ensure a holistic view is taken.
