Rehabilitation psychology helps you cope with chronic (ongoing) or disabling conditions and get stronger — emotionally and mentally. Our programs improve cognitive functioning and behavioral problems related to attention, memory, thinking, mood and help improve emotional issues like depression and anxiety.
We provide comprehensive psychological evaluation, and therapies to support the whole family. Psychological tests may include:
- In-depth interviews
- Diagnostic assessments
- Neuropsychological evaluation
- Achievement tests
- Personality assessments
- Vocational or occupational tests
Don’t let chronic illness or disability get you down. Contact the University of Miami Health System for a psychological evaluation, and start living again.
