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 Self-Report Short Response Form is completed by the youth. The Short Response Form contains 12 items and takes about half the time of the full-length version to administer (5-10 minutes).
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.
