Evaluation & Consultation
We are available to leadership for consultation regarding individual or community personnel or behavioral concerns, and offer three types of evaluation: standard evaluation, aging and memory evaluation (click for info and to see our video), and risk assessment.
Our leadership team and professional staff are available for consultation with leadership to help you address a situation and guide next steps. Contact us: 301-445-7970
An evaluation provides an individual and his/her superior with practical information and recommendations to help guide next steps. These might include outpatient therapy, spiritual care, medical follow-up or residential treatment (typically six weeks to six months).

A risk assessment informs safety plans and can be part of an evaluation or a stand-alone service (at one of our centers or your location). The assessment includes actuarial testing instruments, file review, interviews and a final report that includes a risk level and recommendations that can be incorporated into a safety plan. Read more here, including a case study.
The understanding and treatment of behavioral and mental health issues continues to evolve, as in any medical field. Saint Luke clinicians not only keep up with professional standards, but actively contribute to research in the areas of diagnosis and treatment. One example is “Predicting Relapse for Catholic Clergy Sex Offenders: The Use of the Static-99,” published in a professional journal in 2012.
