Paladin Special Operations Branch, LLC. Psychological Risk Assessment

Psychological Risk and Assessment Services Group

Psychological Threat Assessment
We assess the threat of serious psychological damage or mission-relevant problems related to specific personnel assignments, generic types of assignments or work settings, geography and theater, and regional culture.

Psychological Risk Mitigation
We develop specific mitigation strategies for potential psychological damage from assignment, setting, or theatre threat or risk, including pre-deployment (pre-assignment) prevention, field modification or intervention, and evacuation planning.

Staff Assessment and Preparation
We psychologically assess, using various testing and interview techniques, staff and potential staff prior to international assignment, during assignments and, when required, remotely.

Staff and Executive Clinical Evaluation, Referral and Treatment
We provide confidential clinical evaluations (and, when required, treatment referrals) related to executive competency, employee fitness for duty, drug and alcohol abuse, threats by employees, and alleged employee harassment. In some matters, we work through organization or company counsel.

Victim Assessment and Care
We perform diagnostic and clinical assessments, and provide or recommend care when appropriate, to individuals in the field as well as their family members (e.g., in situations of detainment, incarceration, or other loss). Emergency assessments may be carried out remotely when required. Care provided or arranged may include individual or group crisis intervention/mitigation, interim care, or long-term care and follow-up.

Clinical Facility Risk Assessment and Management
We assess the clinical standards, workplace safety, and facility safety of psychiatric hospitals and other mental health facilities, as related to risk to patients or staff from psychiatric illness or treatment.
