This book discusses the rationale for the selection of psychosocial measures used to assess adults with serious mental illnesses. The chapters examine the use and efficiency of various measurement tools that intend to evaluate diagnostic and functional specificity, life stressors, supportive resources, quality of life, and more.

The text also analyzes external factors that are vital to clients' clinical progress and continuing community tenure, such as continuity of care, housing resources, and family measures.

Key Features:

  • Presents the purpose of each measurement tool, the description, psychometric properties, reliability, validity, and usage guidelines in template format
  • Includes measurement tools for functional assessment, community living, social problem solving and coping, agency performance evaluation, and more
  • Contains research on treatment adherence, consumer satisfaction with mental health services, and feelings of empowerment
  • Evaluates the functioning and productivity of treatment and rehabilitation centers

This is the ideal tool for clinicians, psychiatrists, rehabilitation professionals, and other mental health professionals working with the mentally ill in hospital or community health settings."
