(3) How much time, and what levels of training and/or experience, are required for appropriate administration, scoring, and interpretation of these instruments? (4) What is known about their validity and reliability? (5) What are the practical clinical applications of these instruments for treatment planning? (6) Which instruments are particularly appropriate or inappropriate to specific populations of interest to the Division of Special Treatment and Rehabilitation Programs?
