Psychological assessment of police recruits, special officers, firefighters, correction officers and other candidates for sensitive public service and security jobs, with ratings of risk and suitability for hiring. Evaluations (and rankings if desired) of candidates for promotion including all superior ranks. This process involves a modified assessment center approach including video-taped exercises, extensive testing and focused, structured interviews which address the issues most relevant to the role the candidate is seeking. Fitness for duty examinations of problem personnel with recommendations for disposition, assessments of dangerousness and specific suggestions for treatment, if appropriate. Assessments for the private sector, especially involving persons in sensitive positions or responsible for the safety of others. Assessment of dangerousness in the workplace for both private and public clients. Licensing of the IFP system to public safety agencies having their own in-house psychological staff. This normally includes the provision of training and ongoing consultation to client agencies in order to assure the most effective use of the overall system. Beyond certain standard tests, proprietary instruments, specialized interviewing formats, job- related judgment exercises and other assessment tools are provided. IFP maintains a strict separation of assessment and treatment services so as to assure that there is no conflict of interest. We may refer persons to suitable providers but conduct no in-house treatment. Management consulting to aid administrators, improve morale and efficiency and reduce intra-departmental frictions. Critical incident debriefings, including PTSD assessments. In service training programs, including stress reduction, dealing with the mentally disturbed, managing suicide risk, cross cultural sensitivity and police- community relations. IFP can also design specialized programs within our areas of expertise.
