Services We Offer

Dr. Craigen and her team have the expertise and experience to generate assessments and psychometric test batteries for all organisations and individuals across an array of different circumstances to produce exceptionally high quality, comprehensive written reports and recommendations.

 

In particular, Craigen Evaluations strives to help divorcing parents & their families in their greatest time of need by using data-driven methods to understand and explain: parent-child relationships, parenting skills and capacity, psychological health, and any possible risks inherent to the family system.

Craigen Evaluations also specialise in providing assessment services to expatriates and/or local students being educated in geographically remote English-medium international schools throughout Mainland China, South East Asia, and Central Asia.

Family Quality Time

Child Inclusive Mediation

Child Inclusive Mediation (CIM) aims to improve co-parenting quality and form responsive parenting arrangements.

 

In this approach, the child's experiences and developmental needs are carefully considered with parents, in their dispute resolution, and with the assistance of a mediator.

 

CIM works to influence a change in the parental state of mind, encouraging parents to refocus on and plan for the needs of their children post-separation. The work combines developmental consultations with children, within a therapeutic mediation process, occurring either within court or community-based services.

Custody Evaluations

For separated or divorced parents struggling to determine appropriate visitation and access arrangements of shared children. Custody Evaluations are typically ordered by the Court when families undergoing divorce proceedings cannot reach agreement on arrangements for their children; psychological evaluation of each of the family members helps the Judge to determine what custody arrangements will be in the child’s best interests. 

 

The aim of our data-driven report is to not only provide measured information on the psychological functioning of each family member but to highlight the strengths each parent can offer and thereby maximise the child’s exposure to these. The report also serves to document the parenting concerns of each party, so they are fully heard, and to address these in the final section of recommendations. The report recommendations further aim to promote self-healing amongst each participant and provide for a continuing forum to monitor the adequacy of the arrived-at arrangements.   

 

Custody Evaluations thereby add clarity for families at this extremely distressing time, highlighting specific difficulties faced by each of the children and suggesting a helpful path forwards.

Couples Counseling

Psychological & Parenting Capacity Evaluations

Dr. Craigen can provide bespoke psychological testing services for individuals, parents, businesses, sports teams, expedition teams, and more. Boarding schools and other speciality schools may require psychological testing as part of the admission process; prospective adoptive parents are often required to undergo full psychological evaluation as part of the background procedures, and those individuals facing criminal charges may often benefit from a psychological evaluation. We have also provided psychological evaluations for those with more unusual needs -- such as to support an application for a gun license.  

Dr. Craigen can also work closely with psychiatrists in Hong Kong, particularly when they require measured data on a patient’s psychological functioning.
