Incident Severity Scales

Partnership/Type: Department of Defense Family Advocacy Program
Status: Current Project

The Family Advocacy Program (FAP) Incident Severity Scale (ISS) is a research-based tool that meets the goal of providing an objective, consistent and standardized means to determine the severity of met criteria for child abuse/neglect and domestic abuse incidents by FAP clinicians across all the Services. This Clearinghouse hosts the ISS Support Website that is intended to support clinicians with implementation of the ISS tool by providing ISS FAQs and Videos that describe ISS tool elements in more detail. These resources are intended to refresh the clinician’s knowledge of the Scales and are always available in order for the clinician to access a specific area within the Scales for clarification. Our specialists at the Clearinghouse are here to support clinicians as they have questions about the implementation of the ISS Tool and we are available via email or the phone helpline at 1-877-382-9185 weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST/EDT.
