The Adolescent Psychopathology Scale (APS) can be used to evaluate the presence and severity of symptoms of psychological disorders and distress, in adolescents aged 12-19 years.
The APS Short Form (APS-SF) includes 115 items derived from the full scale APS. It is ideal for use when time and circumstance require a brief measure of psychopathology.
The APS-SF addresses issues regarding school safety by assessing excessive anger and propensity for violence toward others. The APS-SF consists of 12 clinical scales and 2 validity scales.
The APS-SF can be scored using the Scoring Program, or online via PARiConnect. The APS-SF Manual is required for interpreting the Score Reports generated from either option.
