Direct methods used by professionals for assessing child emotional state include interviews with children and self-report scales, such as the Children's Depression Inventory, State-Trait Anxiety Inventory for Children, and the Youth Self-Report form of the Child Behavior Checklist. But children with emotional disturbance may not be able to effectively communicate their emotions. Self-report scales can be easy to administer and very useful in the evaluation of adolescents.

Indirect methods for assessing child and youth emotional state include projective tests such as drawings, sentence completion tests, storytelling in response to pictures, and interpretation of inkblot responses. These latter methods require substantial clinical training and experience for accurate administration and interpretation.

Hi there. I found it is really impressive that telehealth is so powerful, far beyond my imagination! It turns out telehealth covers so many themes, including the telehealth modalities (e.g., video, asynchronous), clinical topics (e.g., chronic disease management), telehealth function (e.g., remote patient monitoring, consultations). Could you help me with its effectiveness? It seems impossible for me to summarize.

Hi there. While it sounds like data visualizations are so valuable, I wonder if there is any weakness about it that social workers should keep in mind?

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
