101238: Measuring the Promise

A Compendium of Recovery Measures, Volume II

About the Course:

This compendium offers an update to PN-43, Can We Measure Recovery? A Compendium of Recovery and Recovery-Related Instruments (Ralph, Kidder, & Phillips, 2000). Following a discussion of the need for recovery measures, Volume II offers a synopsis of the November 2004 invitational conference Measuring the Promise: Assessing Recovery and Self-Determination Instruments for Evidence-Based Practices. Reviews of the instruments themselves follow this section. The instruments are divided into two categories: measures of individual recovery and measures of recovery-promoting environments. Volume II concludes with recommendations for further developments in the measurement of recovery. PLEASE NOTE: This course utilizes information through CHAPTER 4 only- no exam questions are based on information found in the appendices.
