Courts will often order an evaluation during a legal proceeding, particularly if an individual has been arrested. A “Court-Ordered” Evaluation is typically a generic word, and a judge will order a specific evaluation such as a Substance Abuse Evaluation, or a Mental Health Evaluation. An Anger Management Evaluation centers on determining if an individual has an underlying issue with their ability to control urges and their temper. Typically, an Anger Management Evaluation is paired with a series of counseling sessions that teach the client coping mechanisms and techniques to respond to stressful encounters and life in general.
Our counseling professionals are experienced in working with courts and attorneys to help our clients navigate the process. If you have been ordered to undergo an evaluation and need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 7772.742.2020 to speak with a licensed processional counselor.
