  • Identify the root causes of potential problems early on.
  • Provide easy-to-understand information to share with parents, teachers, and
    others in the adolescent’s support network.

Key Features

  • At the psychologist’s discretion, the clinical scales and three of the validity
    scales can  be scored from the first 350 items, a significant savings in
    administration time.
  • Norms are adolescent-specific.
  • Scales help address problems clinicians are more likely to see with adolescents,
    including family issues, eating disorders, and chemical dependency.
