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:

  1. Clinical Disorders: Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity, Conduct, Oppositional Defiant, Adjustment, Substance Abuse,Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Sleep, Somatisation, Panic, Obsessive-Compulsive, Generalised Anxiety, Social Phobia, Separation Anxiety, Posttraumatic Stress, Major Depression, Dysthymic, Mania, Depersonalisation, Schizophrenia
  2. Personality Disorder: Avoidant, Obsessive-Compulsive, Borderline, Schizotypal, Paranoid
  3. Psychosocial Problems: Self-Concept, Psychosocial Substance Use Difficulties, Introversion, Alienation-Boredom, Anger, Aggression, Interpersonal Problems, Emotional Lability, Disorientation, Suicide, Social Adaptation
  4. Response Style Indicators: Lie Response, Consistency Response, Infrequency Response, Critical Item Endorsement

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.
