Family Assessment Form (FAF): A Practice-Based Approach to Assessing Family Functioning (FAF Book)By:
Children's Bureau of Southern California
The Family Assessment Form helps workers to assess families at the beginning of service, to develop individualized family service plans, to monitor family progress, and to assess outcomes for individual families. The FAF is designed as a standardized form but is adaptable in its implementation for a variety of clinical, procedural, and/or program needs. Using a nine-point rating scale, the FAF enables workers to complete a psychosocial assessment that is recorded in a quantitative manner and allows for monitoring family progress. The FAF is also a valuable research tool, and information on reliability and validity is provided.
The Family Assessment Form is now available as well in a convenient electronic format.
