The Children's Depression Inventory - Second Edition (CDI-2) is a comprehensive multi-rater assessment of depressive symptoms in youth aged 7 to 17 years. Depressive symptomatology is quantified by the CDI-2 based on reports from children/adolescents, teachers and parents.
Based on the original CDI, the second edition includes new items that focus on the core aspects of childhood depression, revised scales that are more reliable and valid, as well as new norms.
The CDI-2 is available in paper-and-pencil, online, and software formats.
The CDI-2 Parent Response Form contains 17 items, and is completed by adult respondents about a specific youth - in this case a Parent.
The responses are entered into the Scoring Software, or the MHS Online Assessment Centre by the examiner, for automatic scoring and report generation.
Response Forms are not designed to be handscored, please refer to the Quickscore Form for handscoring.
