Dramatic evidence of students with significant psychopathology and violence proneness has made recent media headlines across the country. This behaviour is often a tragic outcome of adolescent psychopathology.

The APS-SF is a multidimensional measure of psychopathology and personality characteristics derived from the Adolescent Psychopathology Scale (APS). It consists of 115 items in 12 clinical scales and 2 validity scales. The APS-SF Clinical scales include Conduct Disorder (CND), Major Depression (DEP), Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTS), Eating Disturbance (EAT), Academic Problems (ADP), Self-Concept (SCP), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (OPD), Generalised Anxiety Abuse Disorder (GAD), Substance Abuse Disorder (SUB), Suicide (SUI), Anger/Violence Proneness (AVP), and Interpersonal Problems (IPP). The APS-SF Validity scales include Defensiveness (DEF) and Consistency Response (CNR).

The APS-SF provides many benefits to both school and clinical psychologists who work with adolescents:

  • Addresses issues regarding school safety by assessing excessive anger and propensity for violence toward others.
  • Reliable, derived from the APS.
  • Requires only an 8 year reading level.
  • Quick, takes only 15-20 minutes to administer.
  • Ideal for school-based group settings (ages 12-19 years).
  • Scoring Programme produces a Clinical Score Report that includes Critical Item endorsements.

Scoring Program

The APS-SF must be scored using the APS-SF Scoring Program. APS-SF item responses are entered into the APS-SF Scoring Program, the user selects the appropriate normative comparison group. In less than five minutes, the program calculates the T score for each scale and generates the APS-SF Clinical Score Report.
