Families in Trouble: A Comprehensive Family Rating Technique.
Deschin, Celia S.
As part of a demonstration project to determine the effect on the mental health of physically handicapped children of integration with their nonhandicapped peers, two research instruments were developed. The monograph discusses one of the testing devices, the Comprehensive Family Rating. After a brief summary of the project, a description of the instrument, which examines the child's handicap and its effect on the household, parental attitude and parental handling, is given. Scoring for the three components of the test and utilization of the technique, using illustrations from the project, are also described. It is the author's opinion that the technique could help to clarify parental inability in child rearing by strengthening the social worker's sensitivity, insights, and skills through lessening the need for generalized value judgments. Other documents related to the project include EC 032 228 which discusses the Self Image Evaluation, and EC 032 230 which is the final comprehensive report on the project. (CD)
