by William M. Reynolds, PhD
Qualification Level: A (Psychologist)

Purpose: Screens for the presence of symptoms of psychological disorders and distress
Age: 12 through to19 years
Admin: Individual or group
Time: 15-20 minutes
Sample Report: APS-SF Clinical Score Report

The APS empirically assesses the severity of symptoms associated with specific DSM-IV™ clinical and personality disorders.

The 115-item APS-SF is a multidimensional measure of psychopathology and personality derived from the APS.

  • Ideal for use when time and circumstance necessitate a brief measure of psychopathology.
  • Addresses issues regarding school safety by assessing excessive anger and propensity for violence toward others.
  • Consists of 12 clinical scales and two validity scales. Six of the clinical scales focus on DSM-IV™ symptomatology associated with the following disorders: conduct disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, major depression, generalized anxiety disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, and substance abuse disorder.
  • The remaining six clinical scales are not anchored to specific DSM-IV disorders and symptoms but evaluate the related and important areas of eating disturbance, suicide, academic problems, anger/violence proneness, self-concept, and interpersonal problems.
  • Must be scored using either PARiConnect or the APS-SF Scoring Program. In less than 5 minutes, the APS-SF Scoring Program calculates T scores for each scale and generates the APS-SF Clinical Score Report, which includes critical item endorsements.
