Assessment Tools

*The Functional Idiographic Assessment Template (FIAT; Callaghan, 2001) is a behaviorally-based assessment system that breaks client responding into classes of behavior based on function of responding.  Function is tied to interpersonal effectiveness and distress.  It is an idiographic template; therefore each assessment for each person is different.  It allows for usage of a common language for classes of behavior across clients.
