OKDHS Parent Competency Exams

Several MCC psychologists are trained to deliver high-quality psychological examinations to parents currently involved in the process of reunification with their child(ren) after having lost custody. The MCC doctors who perform these examinations interview the parent extensively, obtain collateral information from DHS, and administer several psychological tests. The ultimate purpose of the forensic evaluation is to determine whether any serious mental illness or cognitive deficit is present that would prevent the parent from adequately and appropriately exercising his/her parental rights, duties, and responsibilities.
