Announcing our Newest Offering: Forensic Psychological Examination Report Toolkit

In the coming weeks, we will be releasing our new Forensic Psychometric Examination Report Toolkit.  The Toolkit includes everything you need to prepare, compile, and deliver quality professional forensic reports.  Whether you work with civil or criminal courts, child protective services, family courts, law enforcement agencies, military courts,  or any other area of jurisprudence where the psychological examination of thought, affect, or behavior is needed, the Forensic Psychometric Examination Report Toolkit will dramatically reduce the time it takes to organize and distill test data, aggregate test results, and report findings, all while giving your reports a consistently professional look and feel.

The Toolkit supports point-and-click uploading of psychometric test results, including scale scores for the most popular measures of personality, intelligence, aptitude, interest, and clinical psychopathology.  Because we employed a modular design methodology, we can roll out functions and features in rapid fashion.

For Treatment Professionals and Others Interested in Learning More About Addiction

Please check out our Resources page for links to articles that speak to co-occurring disorders.  A co-occurring disorder (better known in medicine as comorbidity) exists when an individual has both a mental disorder and a substance use disorder (substance abuse, substance dependence, etc.).  The treatment of comorbid mental health and substance use disorder focuses more on both conditions being primary and in need of evidence-based care, and less on which might have caused which.  Check out the sites to which we link on our resources page.
