Description of a Portfolio[edit | edit source]

The portfolios are toolkits pulling together high-quality information and resources for evidence-based assessment. The goal is to make the material easy for clinicians to find and use. Each covers the following topics:

  • Benchmark rates in different settings,
  • Diagnostic criteria and considerations (ICD-11 diagnostic criteria),
  • Assessment resources, emphasizing the best free options when possible
  • Diagnostic interviews,
  • Progress measures, and
  • Outcome measures.

The materials also include administration information, psychometric data, scoring information, and links to the measures themselves. They are grouped as:

  1. Screening tools and assessments that can be done ahead of the first appointment
  2. Diagnostic interviews and deeper, focused assessments, often done during the assessment session
  3. Progress and Outcome measures, designed to measure change over the course of treatment

Instructions for Editing a Portfolio[edit | edit source]

  • All instances where you need to replace general phrases are noted by parentheses and are in bold. Ex. (insert portfolio name)
  • Anything marked by 4 asterisks is merely instructional and for your use when adapting the template to a real portfolio; any asterisked material should be deleted in your actual portfolio.
  • For example: "****Below are two examples of with what you should put in this table."
  • Make sure to delete this code in the final portfolio.
