Assessment measures

We use gold standard assessment measures and tools for diagnostics, such as the Autism Diagnostic Observation Scale (ADOS) and the Wechsler Intelligence Scales for example.

DSM-V

The Diagnostic Statistical Manual (DSM-V) is a handbook for mental heqalth professionals used to diagnose varying mental health conditions similar to the ICD-10. The DSM-V is more to be used likely to be used in the USA and Canada though not exclusively so; it often just depends on which manual the professional has been trained in. 

ICD-10

ICD-10 is the 10th revision of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, a medical classification list by the World Health Organization. The ICD is used as a foundation for the identification of health trends and statistics globally. It is the international standard for defining and reporting diseases and health conditions. It allows the world to compare and share health information using a common language.

MCMI-IV

The Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory–IV (MCMI–IV) is a 195 item self-report instrument designed to help clinicians assess personality and psychopathology in adults age 18 years or older who are undergoing psychological or psychiatric assessment or treatment.

Mediation

Mediation is a dynamic, structured, interactive process where an impartial third party assists disputing parties in resolving conflict through the use of specialized communication and negotiation techniques. All participants in mediation are encouraged to actively participate in the process.

Wechsler Intelligence Scales

The Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS) is an IQ test designed to measure intelligence and cognitive ability in adult and older adolscents.

We only use reliable and validated psychometric tools which are aligned to internationally recognised methods of categorising mental illness; the International Classification of Diseases, version 10 (ICD-10) or the Diagnostic Statistical Manual, version 5 (DSM-IV) such as Millon Multiaxial Clinical Inventory, version 4 (MCMI-IV) for example.
