The Child and Adolescent Functional Assessment Scale (CAFAS) allows the clinician to objectively assess the degree of impairment in school-aged youth with emotional, behavioral, psychiatric, or substance use problems. Use of the CAFAS will enhance the ability of Psychologists, Counselors and Social Workers to identify the types and degrees of functional impairments, making it a valuable clinical tool. This online seminar provides detailed training on the uses of the CAFAS; the guidelines and scoring principals as well as a complete explanation of the scoring of each of the subscales. This online training includes interactive quizzes on each subscale, opportunities for the participants to ask questions and engage in practice exercises. Training/scoring guidelines, tips and strategies will be presented. Participants can anticipate passing Reliability testing and becoming a confident trainer. Who should attend: Social Workers, Psychologists, or other staff who will be training others in CAFAS.
