Classics in the Field!
Consisting of 26 individual and reproducible rating scales, each scale is explicitly defined, and covers four to six levels that range from adequacy to increasing degrees of inadequacy on the dimension being measured. With regular use, you'll be able to identify those situations predictive of near-term placement so at-risk families may be offered appropriate preventive services. In addition, the scales provide a useful method for monitoring the effectiveness of preventive services.
The Family Risk Scales are generic, apply to all risk situations, and cover those dimensions that directly describe family or individual functioning that are potentially malleable.
