dual-role relationships

Many people involved in the justice system and people with serious mental illness are required to participate in psychosocial treatment, whether they want it or not. With these clients, case managers, probation officers, and other providers are tasked with both promoting client recovery (a helping, therapeutic role) and protecting community safety (a controlling, surveillance role). In this paper, which was recently accepted into Psychological Assessment, Dr. Perman Gochyyev and Dr. Jennifer Skeem developed and validated a short form of the Dual-Relationship Inventory (DRI-R) —the 9-item DRI-SF—by applying multidimensional item response theory methods to four datasets.
