Assessing Family Problems: An Evaluation of Key Elements of the Children's Review Schedule
Sheppard, Michael; Wilkinson, Tina
Children & Society, v24 n2 p148-159 Mar 2010
The importance of providing consistent methods for the assessment of need for practice and research in child and family social work has been accepted for some considerable time. One feature identified by key stakeholders, such as Directors of Children's and Social Services, is the need for rigour in the development of such instruments. This paper reports on an evaluation of the Children's Review Schedule, an instrument developed in collaboration with one Children's Department. It focuses on a key aspect of the assessment of need: the measurement of the nature, range and severity of family problems.
