Master Your NYPD Oral Psychological Interview: The oral psychological interview is a make-or-break moment in the NYPD appeal process. In this post we will provide valuable insights on how to approach and succeed in the interview, ensuring you leave a lasting positive impression.

Candidates should expect their Oral Psychological Evaluation to be very stressful. This challenging environment is done by design. Candidates must realize that they are applying for one of the most important and stressful jobs, in which many unforeseen problems can and will arise, and they MUST be ready, willing and able to handle those challenges in a quick, calm and professional manner. Your Evaluator will be making the determination as to whether or not you are capable of handling the challenges Police Officers face daily, based on many factors, including body language, attitude and your responses to different questions and situations. You must be prepared both physically and mentally for your Oral Psychological Evaluation.

Following, are some basic tips you should keep in mind before, during and after your Evaluation:

You should arrive promptly, dress appropriately, have a good attitude when meeting with your Evaluator (smile, address them by name, speak firmly and clearly, maintain eye contact, extend your hand to offer a firm handshake and when invited to sit, be sure to sit upright, not slouching). Moreover, NEVER let your Evaluator see you frustrated, angry or crying for any reason at any time, as this is all part of the evaluation process to “test” your capabilities for the job. Remember, you are on a job interview, and it is your attitude, body language and responses that are being evaluated. You should present yourself as if you are already a Police Officer if you would like the Evaluator to see you as one. Finally, keep your answers short and sweet, unless your Evaluator requests you to do otherwise.

Don’t Get Labeled a Poor Historian in Your Psych Evaluation

Don’t Get Labeled a Poor Historian in Your Psych Evaluation

When undergoing psychological evaluations, it is essential to present an accurate and well-documented personal history. Your history provides valuable insights into your past experiences, which can aid in understanding your current mental health and well-being. However, presenting yourself as a poor historian can negatively impact the evaluation process. In this article, we will explore strategies to avoid being labeled as a poor historian during psychological assessments.

  1. Self-Preparation

Before the evaluation, take some time to self-reflect and prepare. Think about significant life events, relationships, and any psychological symptoms you’ve experienced. Having a clear understanding of your own history will make it easier to convey this information accurately.

  1. Organize Your Thoughts

Create a timeline of significant life events, starting with your earliest memories and progressing chronologically. This timeline should include major milestones, such as educational achievements, career changes, marriages, divorces, and any traumatic experiences. Organizing your thoughts in this way can help prevent memory gaps and ensure you provide a comprehensive history.

  1. Gather Supporting Documentation

Collect relevant documents that can support your historical account. These might include medical records, school transcripts, employment records, and legal documents. Having concrete evidence can bolster your credibility as a historian.

  1. Be Honest
own your words

Honesty is paramount during psychological evaluations. Avoid exaggerating or minimizing your experiences. If you’re unsure about specific details, it’s better to admit uncertainty than to provide inaccurate information. Psychologists are trained to work with incomplete information and can appreciate your honesty.

  1. Use Concrete Language

When describing your experiences, use concrete language to convey the details accurately. Avoid vague or ambiguous statements. Instead of saying, “I sometimes felt sad,” you could say, “I experienced persistent feelings of sadness, especially in the evenings, for several months.”

  1. Provide Context

Context is crucial in understanding your history. Explain the circumstances surrounding significant events or changes in your life. This helps psychologists gain a deeper understanding of the factors that may have influenced your mental health.

  1. Seek Input from Trusted Sources

If you’re concerned about your ability to recall certain events accurately, consider seeking input from trusted friends or family members who may have witnessed or been involved in those events. Their perspectives can provide additional context and verification.

  1. Clarify Your Emotional State

Describe your emotional state during specific periods of your life. Were you generally happy, anxious, or depressed? Understanding your emotional well-being at different times can help psychologists assess patterns and trends in your mental health.

  1. Address Memory Gaps

If you genuinely can’t remember certain details or periods in your life, don’t panic. Instead, acknowledge these gaps and explain that you’re unsure about the specifics. Psychologists are trained to work with individuals who may have memory lapses.

Presenting yourself as a reliable historian during psychological evaluations is crucial for accurate assessments and effective treatment planning. By self-preparing, organizing your thoughts, being honest, using concrete language, providing context, and seeking input from trusted sources, you can avoid the label of a poor historian and ensure that your history contributes positively to the evaluation process. Remember, psychologists are there to help, and your openness and accuracy are essential for their work to be most effective.

Why Were You Psychologically Disqualified?

Why Were You Psychologically Disqualified?

All NYPD Candidates must go through the Psychological Evaluation process, and some will receive a psychological disqualification. There are many reasons why a Candidate might receive a psychological disqualification. It could be that the NYPD Psychologist felt the candidate had psychological issues that would adversely affect their ability to effectively perform their duties. It could also be that the psychologist simply made a mistake. If a Candidate feels that they were erroneously disqualified, they should appeal their disqualification in an effort to get a new assessment from an independent psychologist that can give them a more accurate assessment of their psychological makeup and possibly get their disqualification decision reversed. Candidates can receive psychological disqualifications for many reasons, such as, poor stress management, anger issues, racial bias or many other issues that might deem them unfit for police work.
