The FAM-III is an assessment of family functioning. It is unique in its ability to provide a multirater and multigenerational (within the family) assessment of functioning across six universal clinical parameters and two validity scales. Its capacity for differentiation makes it well-suited to clinical assessment and treatment monitoring. Based on the Process Model of Family Functioning, the FAM– III assessment can be completed by preadolescent, adolescent, and adult family members.

How to Use the Assessment
The FAM-III consists of three forms: the General Scale examines overall family health; the Dyadic Relationship Scale examines how a family member views his or her relationship with another family member; and the Self-Rating Scale allows each person to rate his or her own functioning within the family. By comparing the three scales to each other, you obtain a rich picture of how family members view levels of family interaction.
