Other areas of specialty
Psychovocational assessments allow individuals to gain a better understanding of their various skills, learning styles, and vocational aptitudes and interests and how that may be best applied as they progress in their career paths. Patients will garner valuable knowledge that can help them further succeed in their training and employment opportunities and follow their passions. Those who have been in motor vehicle accidents and have an injury/disability could also benefit from this type of assessment if they are seeking a new job or career that will better suit them.
We serve many individuals who experience anxiety as a driver and/or passenger following a motor vehicle accident. In addition to benefitting from therapy, many are also referred to a driver training program for an assessment and development of an in-car plan in order to complement the psychological treatment with in-car work and to provide them with specific teachings regarding safe driving habits. The effectiveness of in-clinic therapy of such anxiety is greatly enhanced by so-called in-vivo (i.e. real life, in this case, in car) exposure. This fact is supported by research and clinical literature. Such exposure, when provided under the direction of a qualified instructor, allows the person to systematically practice the skills taught at the clinic in the real world situation.
