Most measurement tools designed for assessment and evaluation focus on problems and deficits. This chapter describes tools that have been designed to elicit strengths. Specifically, it provides information about strengths-based measures targeted for children and parents, including psychometric information and information on how to obtain the tools. Because so few instruments have been constructed exclusively from a strengths perspective, the chapter also includes those that elicit strengths and problems in relatively equal measure. For both types of instruments, the focus is on how to use them in a solution-generating way.

Keywords:   measures, evaluation, instruments, strengths-based
