Adolescent families : a clinical tool.

Tiffin, P. A. (2012) 'Adolescent families : a clinical tool.', BACP children and young people. . pp. 24-27.


Families have been shown to play an important role in the outcome of adolescent mental health problems. Conversely, when a member is ill or distressed, family life is affected. The Family Perceptions Scale (FPS) was developed as a novel clinical tool and research instrument. The questionnaire is specifically designed to evaluate young people’s views of their family functioning across a number of domains. In addition, adult family members are also able to complete the questionnaire, allowing the clinician and family to explore disparities in scores between differing individuals.
