Assessments like anger management assessments and domestic violence assessments consist of a process where a qualified professional will provide a clinical opinion about how a person handles negative emotional experiences. Everyone experiences negative emotions from time to time, but occasionally individuals have problems letting frustration or angry feelings turn into destructive incidents.
Anger management and domestic violence assessments seek to determine whether a particular incident has underlying personal factors which could make the individual who was asked to complete an assessment susceptible to reoccurring problems. Additionally, the assessment will help them and the court, get an accurate picture of the individual’s ability to appropriately manage frustration or angry feelings.
After completion of an online questionnaire and an interview by phone or video, one of our trained evaluators will email a professional document appropriate for the courts, probation departments, or employers, in 5 business days or sooner if rush services are chosen.
