Abstract

A 35-item multiple choice inventory to assess inpatient staff's knowledge of behavioral methods with children and adolescents is described. The instrument appears to possess satisfactory content validity for basic behavioral principles and good internal consistency and reliability. It appears useful for research and staff inservice educational assessment in inpatient treatment settings where a measure of this type in needed. The inventory may also be useful in identifying newly employed staff who may benefit from behavioral training before assuming direct service roles on inpatient wards.
