This is an “assessment” tool, not a diagnostic tool. A formal evaluation and determination resulting in a diagnosis should always be done by a qualified mental health professional.
But this quick assessment tool is designed for a clinician reviewing their own already-completed psychosocial assessment, to help determine the extent to which Antisocial Behavior issues should be addressed in treatment planning and working with a particular client.
Clinicians working with addicted offenders and ‘coerced’ (court-ordered) clients often find these problems complicating substance abuse treatment; this tool can help identify particular areas of concern. It can highlight areas where additional evaluation or diagnostic review can improve treatment planning and promote better outcomes.
