This seminar will present the theoretical concepts and principles underlying the measurement of social participation of children, adolescents, and adults assessed by the Social Profile in group activities for individuals or for a group. These levels of social interaction around activities are measured across 5 separate and continuous levels of social behavior: Parallel, Associative, Basic Cooperative, Supportive Cooperative and Mature levels of social behavior. The Social Profile’s history and development through studies of validity, reliability and sensitivity will be presented in this webinar.
