Subject:RE: Screening MH issues

Hi Dr. Friend; You might be interested in the 3 houses, which can be found at signsofsafety.net. Athough it was not designed to become a psychometric driven instrument, I think it has many advantages in getting what children (say ages 6 and above) are worried about in ‘real time’. It is easy to use and the booklet has a dvd with many case examples. I like it because it works towards finding a balance with kids when they are being interviewed (house of worry, house of good things, house of the future). I also think it can be used by front line workers who would like to be helpful. Good luck. P in tx From: bounce-5320233-6833529@list.cornell.edu [mailto:bounce-5320233-6833529@list.cornell.edu] On Behalf Of Friend, Colleen Sent: Wednesday, February 17, 2010 10:15 AM To: Child Maltreatment Researchers Subject: RE: Screening MH issues Does anyone have suggestions for a MH screening tool for children 0-12 with established reliability and validity that is: brief, usable by undergraduate research assistants? We are designing an alternative response experiment for CPS and want to make sure we can ID the children who need a longer MH eval. Once we do that, we will move into adolescents, and will look for a similar instrument for them as well. Any suggestions for that?
