Purpose: Measure depressive symptoms in children in Grades 2-6
Age: 7-13 years
Time: RCDS-2: 10-15 minutes; RCDS-2:SF: 2-3 minutes
Designed to screen for depression in children, the Reynolds Child Depression Scale–2nd Edition (RCDS-2) retains the 30 items used in the original measure but presents updated normative data.
Children are asked to answer questions about how they have been feeling during the past 2 weeks, with all items worded in the present tense to elicit current symptoms status.
Reynolds Child Depression Scale–2nd Edition: Short Form (RCDS-2:SF)
The RCDS-2:SF includes 11 of the 30 RCDS-2 items but features many of the critical items from the full version.
The short form can be administered in just 2 to 3 minutes and can help you determine whether your client should be administered the full RCDS-2.
