Synopsis: The Behavioral and Emotional Rating Scale-2 (BERS-2) is one of the few standardized, norm referenced scales available that assesses the strengths of children. The BERS-2 gathers information from the youth, parent (caregiver) and teacher (or therapist). The BERS-2 is ideally suited for planning purposes and assessing services outcomes. In this session, we will present the principles of strength-based assessment, the development and norming strategies used with the BERS-2, and the reliability and validity studies of the BERS-2.
