Item Response Coding
The primary data source for this item is interviews with clinicians. If documented on standardized checklist for 80% or more of involved families, corroborated by coordinator, supervisor, clinicians, and families, the item would be coded as a 5.
For program coordinator and clinicians Do you focus on problem solving? If yes, what is/are your strategy(ies) for addressing this issue? Do you use the same set of strategies for each family? Listen for the list of 6 components given above. If a component is omitted, probe for whether it is included.
For the family members During FPE, do you discuss how to address problems that may arise? If yes, what sorts of activities do you do in the sessions to work on problems you may be having? Do you ever generate plans of action? Is it a step-by-step procedure? Can you describe the steps?
