GENERAL INFORMATION AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR ADMINISTERING THE FAMILY ACCOMMODATION SCALE FOR OBSESSIVE-COMPULSIVE DISORDER

The Family Accommodation Scale for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder assesses the extent to which relatives of patients with OCD engage in 12 types of accommodating behaviors. The FAS-IR is a semistructured interview administered by a clinician or trained lay interviewer. Questions and statements read aloud to the family member by the interviewer are enclosed in quotation marks. Instructions for the interviewer are written in italics.

The FAS includes two areas of inquiry. First, the interviewer obtains information from the family member regarding the patient’s current symptoms. Second, the interviewer assesses the extent to which the family member is involved in accommodating the patient’s symptoms. Each item includes common examples of accommodating behaviors, but the interviewer may wish to develop additional examples based on information gleaned from the family member’s report of patient symptoms.

Each item is scored on a scale ranging from zero (none/not at all) to 4 (everyday/extreme). Total FAS scores range from zero to 48 and are obtained by summing the item scores. A scoring sheet is included. (p. 355) (p. 356) (p. 357) (p. 358)
