The SOAR (Stage 2 Outpatient Adolescent Recovery) initial interview treatment manual was developed at Loma Linda Behavioral Health Institute (BHI) to assess adolescent participants enrolled in a Dialectical Behavioral Therapy for Adolescents (DBT-A) Program and appropriately place them in a treatment group that would meet their mental health needs effectively. The interview manual was developed to address concerns regarding readiness of individuals enrolled in a Stage 1 DBT-A program in progressing into Stage 2 of treatment. In this interview manual, a clinical intake interview and four assessment measures are used to inform group placement in either the Refine and Improve Skills and Emotions (RISE) group or the Stage 2 Outpatient Adolescent Recovery (SOAR) group, inform clinicians regarding participant treatment needs, and measure changes in emotional functioning.
