A screener for child and adolescent mental health
Helps reduce evaluation biases

Although child mental health and quantum physics are very distinct domains, they both share the same limitation: measurement affects the phenomenon under scrutiny.

To overcome this limitation, an array of instruments for assessing child and adolescent mental health have been devised. From simple games to sophisticated tests, they minimize the youth's reaction to the professional, standardize data collection and improve the quality of the information.

Information technology provides the means to further reduce the influence of the evaluation process on the information gathered by removing any intermediary between the youth and the final result.

The Dominic Interactive
Via a format akin to a computer game, graphic material and concrete examples make mental health issues readily accessible to the youth. A series of yes/no questions provide greater scope for self-expression.

The respectful, factual, non-judgmental, non-intrusive and non-threatening atmosphere of the Dominic Interactive makes it easy for the youth to recognize and express feelings.

The instrument organizes the responses according to the DSM-IV-TR and quickly provides a standardized overview of the youth's mental health, suggesting areas the professional may want to explore further.
