The Child and Adolescent Functional Assessment Scale (CAFAS) training prepares clinicians to use the CAFAS instrument - an empirically documented, multidimensional measure that is used for measuring functional impairment in children and adolescents. CAFAS permits assessing impairment, choosing corresponding goals that address areas of impairment, and identifying the child's strengths. Participants will learn to use the instrument to assess School, Home and Community Performance, Thinking, Behavior Toward Others, Mood/Emotions, Self-Harm and Substance Abuse as well as the two care-giver scales, Basic Needs and Family/Social Support. These sub-scales assist in developing a treatment plan that is strengths-based and outcomes-driven.
- Identify essential information to share with caregivers and families about the CAFAS
- Use the CAFAS in clinical session to encourage families and assist in discussions of setting treatment goals
- Identify five valid ways of using a CAFAS profile to determine clinical progress
- Interpret all items on the CAFAS for reliable rating correctly
