Measures for clinical practice : a sourcebook by Kevin Corcoran( Book )

30 editions published between 1987 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today, as practitioners in all areas of the human services are increasingly held accountable for monitoring and evaluating their practices in an objective and efficient manner, a sound familiarity with objective measurement is more essential than ever before. In addition, practitioners must also be concerned with satisfying a dizzying array of state, agency, health maintenance organization, and insurance company guidelines. For more than twelve years, through two highly acclaimed editions and now in an updated and expanded third edition, Kevin Corcoran and Joel Fischer's standard reference, Measures for Clinical Practice, has enabled professionals to gather this vital information easily and effectively. In Measures for Clinical Practice, Volume 1: Couples, Families, and Children, and Volume 2: Adults, Corcoran and Fischer provide an extensive collection of more than 400"rapid assessment instruments" (RAIs), including many questionnaires and scales, which assess virtually any problem commonly encountered in clinical practice. Corcoran and Fischer have revised this edition to reflect new research and contemporary clinical practices. They include new scales and materials in areas such as assessment in culturally diverse populations and measurement in managed care systems, as well as the best instruments updated from the previous editions. Brief and easy to administer, these "best practice measures" will be useful for all types of therapeutic and theoretical orientations. All instruments are actually reprinted in the book, and are carefully introduced and evaluated to aid in their selection. Corcoran and Fischer explain the principles of measurement and how to apply them in practice. They explore the range of assessment techniques available, including behavioral observations, rating scales, and client logs, as well as unobtrusive, electromechanical, and standardized measures. And after examining the advantages and disadvantages of rapid assessment instruments, they show practitioners how to effectively select and administer these measures as part of the treatment process. More comprehensive than ever, this edition of Measures for Clinical Practice is essential to every practitioner and student of social work, psychology, psychiatry, nursing, counseling, and the rehabilitative therapies

People all over the world are confronted by issues such as poverty, a lack of access to quality education, unaffordable and or inadequate housing, and a lack of needed health and mental services on a daily basis.

The evidence-based internship : a field manual by Barbara Thomlison( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Evidence-Based Internship is a unique teaching and learning tool that combines an internship manual with a text on evidence-based practice. Designed for students entering their field placements in social work and criminal justice - which often overlap - it is built on the premise that students, agencies, and field instructors should be able to provide clients with the best evidence-based practice methods currently available. The book is filled with useful strategies for successfully navigating internships and honing the skills necessary to become an accountable practitioner. It will help students begin and carry out their field assignments confidently." "Worksheets, checklists, and in-depth case scenarios illustrate legal and ethical issues, interview and assessment skills, techniques for gathering evidence for a variety of problems in mental health and correctional settings and for preparing an employment portfolio. This is one field manual that students will find useful long after they have completed their internships."--Jacket
