This presentation will focus on a few common logistics related to referring patients for a psychological/neuropsychological evaluation. For early-career professionals, a variety of practical and therapeutic approaches will be discussed to potentially complement the effectiveness of the evaluation process and promote patient satisfaction. The role of incorporating psychodynamic/relational strategies within a comprehensive evaluation will also be introduced.
