Psychiatric Rehabilitation Training Technology: Functional Assessment
Mikal Cohen, Marianne Farkas, & Barry Cohen
|Preview TM||Audience: Recommended for use by instructors and trainers as part of an academic course, staff training, workshop, or seminar in the skills of the psychiatric rehabilitation process.|
Functional assessment is different from traditional diagnosis in that skills are evaluated rather than pathological symptoms or personality. Functional assessment evaluates individuals’ spontaneous use, prompted use, and performance of critical skills in relation to their needed use in a particular environment. This technology teaches practitioners how to help define and evaluate the skills needed for consumers to be successful and satisfied in particular residential, educational, vocational, or social environments. Practitioners learn how to list critical skills, describe skill use, evaluate skill functioning, and coach individuals through the assessment process.
