Today, I read the second worst
evaluation/report I've ever received. I'm referring here to the quality
of the work, not the condition of the examinee. It was so bad that I
consider it malpractice.
The report was done by someone from another clinical discipline that I won't name, but I will say that it's one of the relatively new designations.
I have yet to receive a report from a member of this discipline that I could label anything other than a professional disgrace. I don't know what these people are like as therapists, but they should not be conducting psych evals. They're clueless. Even the patients recognize the poor quality of the work. I know this because they've consistently expressed distress about it when they see me to discuss these evals.
Why create these professional backdoors for clinicians? That's a rhetorical question. The reasons are both clear and deeply troubling.
