Psychological Assessment

Psychological Assessment can be a wonderful tool for differential diagnoses and to further the insight of individuals.

Dr. Craven was a founding member of the Center for Therapeutic Assessment Institute, Austin, TX. Therapeutic Assessment is a semi-structured, collaborative approach of psychological testing developed by Steve Finn, Ph.D. and his colleagues at the Center for Therapeutic Assessment in Austin, Texas. Many goals can be accomplished with such testing, including determining a diagnosis and developing an effective course of treatment.

At present, Dr. Craven focuses exclusively on therapy, consulting, and teaching. Hence, she is no longer personally accepting referrals for assessments, but continues to encourage patients seeking such testing to learn more through the Therapeutic Assessment website: www.therapeuticassessment.com
