The Essen Climate Evaluation Scheme (EssenCES) described here is a short well-validated questionnaire that measures three essential facets of an institution's social atmosphere. An overview of the EssenCES is followed by detailed advice on how to administer and score it and how to interpret findings as well as reference norms from various countries and types of institution. The EssenCES manual and more is thus a highly useful tool for researchers clinicians and service managers working in forensic settings.
