Informed Consent Form for Psychological Assessment Services, LLC

Client Name:   __________________________________    Client’s Date of Birth:  _______________________

The purpose of this form is to provide our clients with specific information regarding the psychological assessment and competency restoration services that they will receive at Psychological Assessment Services, LLC. This agency offers both written and verbal information to our clients.  Please ask your psychologist or therapist for any clarification regarding your assessment and/or competency restoration treatment.

The psychologist will be administering a battery of tests and clinical interview to help develop a comprehensive and thorough understanding of the referral concern. A psychological evaluation report will be written documenting the findings, diagnosis, and recommendations for treatment. As long as this evaluation was not court-ordered, the client or his/her parent/legal guardian may release this report to others by completing a release of information form. The client or his/her parent/legal guardian will receive a copy of this report as long as the report was not court-ordered. They can request a verbal explanation of the results by the psychologist.

The following applies if you have been referred to participate in this evaluation to address issues relevant to a court case. If this evaluation was court-ordered, a report will be written that will be shared with the Court, District Attorney, Defense Attorney, and any relevant Social Services Agency. The report will only be released to the individuals listed on the court-order and it is the Court’s discretion if the report can be released to any further parties, including the client or his/her parent/legal guardian. If this evaluation was requested by your own Defense Attorney (there is no court-order), the report will be shared with your Defense Attorney to determine whether he/she will submit the report to the Court. In court cases, it is possible that the psychologist may be subpoenaed related to these matters and required to provide testimony in court.

If you are participating in competency restoration treatment, the therapist or psychologist will provide information regarding the benefits of treatment, potential risks of treatment, how treatment will be delivered, and alternative treatment options.

I have been provided with the opportunity to discuss any concerns that I may have regarding my psychological evaluation and the privacy of my health information. I understand that my treatment information is confidential unless I am completing a court-ordered evaluation or treatment and there is a court-order that a report must be released to the Court, District Attorney, and Defense Attorney.

My signature on this form also indicates that I have received a copy of the privacy practices and grievance procedures of Psychological Assessment Services, LLC. I understand that this document provides an explanation of the ways in which my health information may be used or disclosed by Psychological Assessment Services, LLC, of my rights with respect to my health information, and how to use the grievance process.
