The Children's Depression Scale 3rd ed. (CDS) is an instrument for assessing and treating depression in young people between 7-18 years of age across diverse cultures.
Covering two scales (Depression and Pleasure), the fully revised third edition includes a shortened scale of 50 items to use with children and their parents, and two new 10-item questionnaires for teachers and health practitioners.
The CDS is administered using a box-and-card format. Each CDS item is printed on a card, with each card being numbered from 1 - 50. Cards are presented to the child in numerical order.
