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 item responses are entered into the APS Scoring Program, which calculates scores for all scales and generates a Clinical Score Report based on the appropriate normative comparison group.
In addition to the scoring software, the APS and APS-SF can be administered and scored online via PARiConnect.
