ASF-E Instrument

 

The Assessment of Strategies in Families - Effectiveness (ASF-E) is an screening instrument that estimates the effectiveness of family functioning or family health. The items were developed to express strategies in the four process dimensions: SM= System Maintenance, SC= System Change, C= Coherence, I= Individuation on three levels of effectiveness (3 = most effective, 1 = least effective).

The tool is used in research to express family health as a dependent or independent variable. It can also be used in family treatment on an individual basis to assess change with treatment
