Clinical Feedback
Feedback to clients on SASSI profiles is useful in increasing awareness, eliciting further information, and establishing rapport. Presenting the results of the decision rules and discussing scale scores can help people understand the significance of their substance usage and identify treatment goals.  Consider completing our clinical interpretation training to help guide your conversation with your client on SASSI results.
