Dr. Andres Chou, an active member and resident comedian of the Testing Psychologist Community, is here today talking with me about clergy evaluations. Andres and I had a wonderful conversation about these evaluations and what it takes to make them a part of your practice. We also got into some deeper layers of spirituality and how your own views on spirituality may impact your work in this area. Here are a few other topics that came up during our chat:
- What types of clergy evaluations can we do?
- What does the battery look like?
- How might one pursue or get referrals for these evaluations?
- Challenges involved with clergy evaluations
