Thank you for considering Dr. Maria R. Martin, Ph.D., LMFT as a provider for your immigration assessment, psychological testing, psychological evaluation or psychotherapy.
Immigration cases typically fall into one of following types:
An immigration evaluation may begin with a discussion with your referring attorney. That discussion involves gathering pertinent information and developing an understanding of the legal issues related to your case.
A face-to-face appointment is set up with you. The assessment process proceeds with extensive interview of all pertinent parties. During these face-to-face interviews I gather important background information and facts about the case and the nature of the immigration proceedings. Also, I gather information regarding you and your family, including social,educational, work and medical histories. At this point I obtain any relevant background information or files you may have from attorneys, physicians, schools and hospitals.
Once all pertinent family members or pertinent parties have been interviewed, psychological tests are then administered, if applicable. Some of the instruments and measures I may use in an assessment include:
1. Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Index
2. Personality Inventories
3. Cognitive and Intelligence tests
4. Memory Impairment Measures
5. Malingering Assessment Tests
6. Neuropsychological tests
7. Acculturation Measures
8. Adaptive Behavior Scales
9. Mental Status Examinations
10. Depression and Anxiety Scales
11. Attention-Deficit and Hyperactivity Measures
12. Measures of Achievement
