Measuring child strengths and competencies.
5 to 18.11 years.
The BERS-2 examines several aspects of a child's strengths, such as interpersonal strengths, functioning in and at school, affective strength, intrapersonal strength, family involvement and career strength. The BERS-2 can be used to identify children with limited behavioural and emotional strengths, identify a child's strengths and weaknesses for intervention, target goals for IEPS and/or treatment plans, document progress and help collect data for research purposes.
Designed to be used in school settings, mental health clinics, juvenile justice settings, and child welfare agencies, the BERS-2 has been widely adopted by local, state and U.S. federal agencies for evaluation of services outcomes.
