Purpose: To assess emotional, behavioural, cognitive, and interpersonal adjustment

Age: 5-19 years

Time: 40 minutes; Behavioural Summary: 15 minutes

The Personality Inventory for Children, Second Edition (PIC-2) is an objective multidimensional tool designed to evaluate the emotional, behavioural, cognitive, and interpersonal adjustment of children and adolescents between the ages of 5 and 19.

The PIC-2 administrative booklet consists of 275 items that are to be completed by the parent of the child or another individual that knows the child well.

When a shorter administration time is needed, the PIC-2 offers a Behavioural Summary, which is comprised of the first 96 items of the test. The Behavioural Summary only takes 15 minutes to administer, and can be used for screening, research, or monitoring behaviour change.

It includes 8 of the Adjustment Scales (all except Cognitive Impairment), each shortened to just 12 items. It provides scores for the 8 scales, as well as a Total Score and 3 Composites—Externalisation, Internalisation, and Social Adjustment.

Because the items on this short form are all in the present tense and all focused on conditions and behaviors that are responsive to relatively brief intervention, the Behavioural Summary is especially helpful in designing and evaluating individual treatment plans. It can be used on its own, or scored as part of the full test.


  • Response Validity Scales
  • Reality Distortion
  • Adjustment Scales
  • Social Withdrawal
  • Cognitive Impairment
  • Delinquency
  • Family Dysfunction
  • Somatic Concern
  • Psychological Discomfort
  • Social Skill Deficits
  • Impulsivity and Distractibility
