Shalom Center is a holistic treatment and renewal center for clergy and men and women religious. Shalom Center’s dedicated professional staff addresses the spiritual, psychological, physical, intellectual and vocational dimensions of the person.
This multi-disciplinary approach to health and healing is deeply rooted in the context of a Catholic faith community. This sacred journey is designed to enable individuals to return to their ministry more “fully human, fully alive.”
The objective of the assessment process is to assist a person in self-understanding as well as to identify problematic issues that need to be addressed to enable a person to minister more effectively.
Our assessment includes: clinical interviews; a battery of psychological tests; psychosocial, spiritual, ministry and addiction profiles; and when indicated, psychiatric assessment, neuropsychological testing and physical examination. Specialized testing can be done if needed, depending on each person’s needs and circumstances. Services are available in English; limited services are available in Spanish.
Three Levels of Assessment

A 5-day Comprehensive Psychological Assessment for individuals experiencing mental health problems, stress and burnout, difficulties in ministry and relationships, and for boundary violations
A 10-day Psychological Assessment and Brief
