    Abstract

    A measure of Citizenship was developed and validated by Rowe and colleagues (O’Connell, Clayton, & Rowe, 2016). The items clustered around the 5 Rs of Citizenship as defined by Rowe: relationships, rights, resources, roles, and rights, and a sense of belonging. While a measure has its utility in clinical settings, in order to address time constraints and other administrative burdens expressed by providers in their day-to-day practice, a Citizens tool was developed as a practical way that providers can enhance dialogue between providers and clients on citizenship for clients served in mental health and criminal justice reentry settings. This paper describes the development of the tool, testing of the tool’s utility with case managers, and implications for practice.
