attitudinal assessments for carers (nurses) working with serious mental illness in

  1. I am planning to do some work with a number of care assistants (CARERS) working with the long term mentally ill on issues such as expressed emotion and the stress vulnerability model. I need to do a preliminary assessment of attitude and belief systems etc with this group.I would welcome any advice/views on this especially regarding assessment. Thanks!

    I have not come across a psychiatric self-assessment tool. but I have used one for "chemical addictions"- It comes out of "the clinical Manual of Substance Abuse" by Jean Kinney- Published by Mosby.

    Good Luck!
