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