evaluations

Our experts are available for consultation. We also offer a five-day comprehensive evaluation that includes clinical, psychological and spiritual assessments, and an examination by a physician.

Comprehensive evaluation

An evaluation typically takes five days (Monday-Friday).

Our holistic approach to assessing an individual’s health includes physical, psychological and spiritual evaluations. During the week, the evaluee - a seminarian, priest or religious - meets with different professionals, including a psychologist, spiritual formator and physician.

The evaluation includes:

  • Laboratory tests and physical examination
  • Clinical interview
  • Psychosocial history interview
  • Spiritual assessment
  • Psychological evaluation
  • Neuropsychological evaluation

Feedback

At the conclusion of the evaluation, both the ecclesiastical superior and the evaluee receive comprehensive oral feedback and recommendations, and a detailed written report. 

Saint Luke Institute's staff is committed to ensuring those who come to us receive the best care possible. An evaluation may result in a range of recommendations, including outpatient therapy, services at another institution or the residential program at Saint Luke Institute.
