For the above-mentioned reasons, therefore, we can see that the data collection effort often requires the development of a controlled study instrument in two or more languages.

Concerning the latter, however, we equally must assert that such research methods become viable only if the multiple versions of the instrument are sufficient in the evaluative terms of semantic/ idiomatic/ experiential/ and conceptual equivalence.(5) Non- equivalent instruments, in contrast, can lead to non-comparable measurements and therefore to biased results.

This course will: (1) provide clinicians with an intermediate level of knowledge of substance abuse issues arising in psychotherapy; (2) equip them to use a face-to-face interview to assess a client’s substance use and related complications; and (3) prepare them to make appropriate recommendations based on assessment results.

Given the vast range of abusable substances and the complexity of individual behavior, not every assessment context can be specified nor can efficacy be guaranteed, but the course will offer the clinician useful ideas and tools for responding to a wide spectrum of substance use disorders and concerns.

The goals are to acquaint the mental health professional (hereafter called “therapist”) with knowledge and skills for assessing a client’s or patient’s use of psychoactive substances along with related concerns.The following general guidelines should be considered in this process: A bilingual (in English and the target language for translation) expert panel should be convened by a designated editor-in-chief.The goal in this step is to identify and resolve the inadequate expressions/concepts of the translation, as well as any discrepancies between the forward translation and the existing or comparable previous versions of the questions if any.Emphasizing the facts that many clients use drugs or alcohol in a problematic manner and that related concerns may emerge at any point in the therapeutic relationship, this course will prepare the therapist to adequately assess a client’s substance use whenever and however this important issue arises in mental health treatment.Furthermore, the course will instruct therapists in using the results of substance use assessments to determine appropriate treatment levels, formulate treatment recommendations, and make medical referrals (or other types of referrals) as needed.
