The Adolescent Psychopathology Scale (APS) is a multidimensional self-report instrument designed to evaluate specific DSM-IV symptoms found in adolescents and to assess other psychological problems and behaviours that may interfere with an adolescent's psychosocial adaptation and personal competence.
It examines domains of psychopathology and psychosocial problems that may suggest the need for direct and expeditious intervention.
The 346-item APS consists of 40 scales that measure four broad content domains:
The APS empirically assesses the severity of symptoms associated with specific DSM-IV™ clinical and personality disorders.
The 115-item Adolescent Psychopathology Scale Short Form (APS-SF) is a multidimensional measure of psychopathology and personality derived from the APS. It is ideal for use when time and circumstance necessitate a brief measure of psychopathology.
