Psychosocial Measurement Tools for Asian Americans

November 14, 2008

Found this useful website, “Psychosocial Measures for Asian-American Populations: Tools for Direct Practice and Research” curated by Dr. Marianne R. Yoshioka, Associate Professor at Columbia University School of Social Work.

The assessment tools covers the whole spectrum of Asian American ethnicities: East Asians, South Asians, Southeast Asians, Pacific Islanders, and Multiple Asian Groups.

The website is described as “a resource for practitioners and researchers working with Asian and Pacific Islander populations.

Specific tools are listed for adults, children, and adolescents, with measures of mental health, social, or emotional functioning and/or family relationships. There are tools to make measurements and assessments in these areas, for example: level of acculturation; homesickness, contentment, loneliness, and depression; the quality of marriage; the extent to which one avoids situations and behaviors that are related to loss of face; and more.

After contacting Dr. Yoshioka, she confirmed that they are accepting additional submissions and working to update the website.
