Product Details

Studies show that ADHD is found in correctional settings at a relatively high rate and that adults with ADHD are at an especially high risk to recidivate.

Benefits

  • Helps to detect ADHD promptly so you can develop the best rehabilitation and release plan
  • This supplement discusses the role of ADHD in the context of recidivism, and includes data on correctional populations

Features

  • The long self-report (CAARS-S:L) and observer (CAARS-O:L) assessments contain nine empirically derived scales that assess a broad range of problem behaviours. They include three DSM-IV Symptom measures, a 12 item ADHD index and an Inconsistency Index
  • Designed to display key dimensions when time with respondents is limited. The short self-report (CAARS-S:S) and observer (CAARS-O:S) assessments comprise abbreviated versions of the factor-derived subscales, the ADHD Index, and the Inconsistency Index
  • The CAARS screening versions (CAARS-S:SV and CAARS-O:SV) focus on DSM-IV criteria for quick ADHD identification. These versions include the same ADHD Index of the long and short versions, as well as the DSM-IV ADHD Symptom Subscales
