populations and clinical populations. Within specific typologies, respondent scores are compared with controls and clinical populations. Two printouts are prepared. The client printout specifies the data with brief explanations in non-clinical language. It also provides tasks and exercises to expand the addict’s learning and awareness.The clinical report presents the same data within a clinical context, identifying areas of concern and focus for the treatment provider. Specific suggestions are provided to explore therapeutically. Relevant recent literature is available at RecoveryZone.com
