Subject:RE: measures/references

A measure that is similar in many respects to the CBCL is the BASC. Similar format, similar scales, and it has the total/internalizing/externalizing higher-order scales that you are seeking. Decent national population norms by age group and gender. Teacher report, parent report and self report versions. One advantage of the BASC is that the child self report paper-and-pencil version goes down to age 8, and there is a child interview version for ages 6-7. When you get down to age seven and under, the problems with self report measures can get pretty bad, not to mention the reading issue.

Subject: measures/references



Dear All



I am working on my PhD and am looking at different measures for child

adjustment (specifically focusing on externalising/internalising). I want

a measure which enables the child to report on their own adjustment.

However, the children in my sample will be aged between 7 and 11 (too

young for the CBCL).



If anyone knows of any good measures, other than the The Children’s

Manifest Anxiety Scale–Revised, Harter’s (1985)

Self-Perception Profile for Children and Disruptive Behavior Scale for

Children, I would be very grateful if you could let me know.



Also I am doing some other work on siblings and domestic violence and am

having trouble finding references. If anyone knows of any good work done

in this area, please do send me the details



Thank you for your time!



Rebecca Barns
