• Based on the most comprehensive review of the scientific literature. The Social-Emotional Strength behavior areas measured by the SEEDS Assessment were of course not chosen at random. They were also not selected based on intuition, or even professional opinion or consensus, as seen with other assessments. The SEEDS areas were identified based on the most comprehensive review of the scientific literature of what works for child and adolescent mental health (Chorpita et al., 2011).
• Evidence-based Areas. To identify what works best, hundreds of randomized treatment studies (spanning various countries and decades of research) were reviewed, resulting in the identification of specific areas of cognitive, behavioral, and interpersonal functioning assessed by the SEEDS Assessment. These areas are considered “evidence-based,” as they were identified based on the findings of the strongest scientific evidence available in the field regarding what most effectively helps children and adolescents manage and overcome their emotional and mental health difficulties.
• Assessing the areas that matter most. The SEEDS Assessment is the only questionnaire that comprehensively assesses these “evidence-based” areas in children and adolescents.
Don’t just be assessed; assess the areas that matter most.
