The Adolescent Well-Being Assessment Tool (Well-BAT)

The Adolescent Well-Being Assessment Tool (Well-BAT) is a clinical, interdisciplinary approach to assessments of youth ages 11 to 20 developed by the Partnership for Results. Evaluated by an independent research agency, the Well-BAT meets the highest standards of reliability and validity.

The Well-BAT is intended for use by trained clinicians to help them identify risk and protective factors present in the development of a youth; to decide whether further assessment is needed; and to identify appropriate interventions. Salient factors affecting well-being are categorized into three major domains (personal development, environmental influences and level of functioning) and across four contexts: individual, school, family, and community. The Well-BAT is truly multi-disciplinary, exploring issues in the fields of mental health, substance abuse, cognitive development, and exposure to violence. Information is gathered through interviews with teachers, students and their parents; standardized measurement and screening instruments; student self-reports; school records and when appropriate, collateral sources. The Well-BAT serves to guide development of comprehensive treatment plans by clinicians, as well as to provide a basis for thoroughgoing discussions in case management meetings.
