Get expert and easy-to-use help in treating your clients who are chronically mentally ill. The Functional Needs Assessment Treatment Guide describes how to help your clients achieve demonstrable progress. The Functional Needs Assessment (FNA) is a "show-me" assessment; it enables one to identify and build on the patient's abilities as the foundation for growth, rather than focusing on a list of deficits to be overcome. The assessment usually takes less than an hour to administer.
The many charts and examples explain how to use the six FNA programs in communication, self-care, nutritional management, community skills, prevocational skills, and pre-placement skills. Additional examples and reproducible worksheets demonstrate how to adapt the components of the FNA to create one's own programs for a wide variety of treatment settings. The FNA program elements also provide detailed information for regulatory agencies that evaluate the process, outcome, and quality of occupational therapy interventions.
