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.
