Purpose: Obtain rater observations or self-report information of diverse aspects of adaptive functioning and problems in adults.

Age: 18 -59 years  

Time: 15-20 minutes

The Adult Behaviour Checklist (ABCL) and Adult Self-Report (ASR) obtain information regarding an adult’s adaptive functioning, problems and substance abuse. There are two forms available:

  • Adult Self-Report 18-59 (ASR): Used by the adult to report their own adaptive functioning
  • Adult Behaviour Checklist 18-59 (ABCL): Completed by individuals who know the adult well, about said adult

The scoring profiles for the ASR and ABCL include normed scales for adaptive functioning, Personal Strengths, empirically based syndromes, substance use, Internalising, Externalising, and Total Problems.

In addition, the ASR and ABCL profiles feature DSM-oriented scales consisting of items that experts identified as being very consistent with DSM-5 categories. The profiles also include a Critical Items scale consisting of items of particular concern to clinicians.

The ABCL and ASR can be used for assessing parents of children seen for mental health and family therapy services. By having parents complete ASRs to describe themselves and ABCLs to describe their partner, you obtain profiles that highlight crucial agreements and disagreements between parents’ self-descriptions and other people’s descriptions of their functioning. You can also compare parents’ ASR and ABCL profiles with their children’s ASEBA profiles.

Adaptive Functioning Scales: Friends; Spouse/Partner; Family; Job; Education, Personal Strengths
