IPS fidelity scale for young adults

IPS fidelity scale for young adults

Researchers from the IPS Employment Center, part of the Rockville Institute in the USA have developed an adaptation of the IPS Fidelity Scale tailored to the young adult (15 to 26 years) population.

There are 35 items, many are the same as the IPS scale, with new items on education, family involvement, and career exploration.

Work Counts recommends that organisations in New Zealand who are supporting young people with mental health and addiction issues into employment and education should look to use this new scale, rather than the IPS-25 scale, to measure the quality of their support practices.
