Banira Psychological Corporation is able to provide several different types of psychological assessments, tailored to the client's needs.

Clients in Edmonton and the surrounding areas rely on Banira Psychological Corporation for the following types of psychological assessments for adults:

  • Mental health assessment
  • Intellectual assessment
  • Psycho-legal assessment (in the event of a motor vehicle accident, or harassment and/or abuse)
  • Disability assessment
  • Capacity assessment

Capacity Assessments

Sherrie Banks, M.A., R.Psych., is an approved Capacity Assessor. These types of assessments are conducted when there is concern about an adult or near-adult (adolescent) having the ability to look after his or her own affairs. If a client already has a guardian, the written consent of that guardian will be required before a Capacity Assessment is undertaken. In addition, the client will have had to have seen a physician within the three months before the Capacity Assessment is conducted. The physician will need to provide a letter to Banira Psychological Corporation stating the client's diagnoses and stating whether these are permanent and whether there are any temporary conditions affecting the client's functioning.


Psycho-Legal Assessments

Psycho-legal assessments are provided by Banira Psychological Corporation and are typically requested by a lawyer. Sherrie has experience in providing these in the context of a motor vehicle accident and in the context of sexual abuse or harassment.

Mental Health Assessments

Mental health assessments are conducted in order to assess a client's psychological functioning and are requested for various reasons. These may include a working assessment prior to initiating a course of psychotherapy, self-referrals, and/or referrals from physicians or psychiatrists.


Disability Assessments

Disability assessments are often requested by the client's insurance provider or rehabilitation consultant. They are sometimes requested in the context of return-to-work plans or as a working assessment in the context of a course of psychotherapy.
