Assess for Substance Abuse, Suicidal Behavior, Emotional Lability, Anger, Aggression, Alienation, and Introversion


The APS empirically assesses the severity of symptoms associated with specific DSM-IV clinical and personality disorders. A short form, ideal for screening, is also available.

Features and benefits

  • A multidimensional self-report instrument.
  • Also assesses other psychological problems and behaviors that may interfere with an adolescent’s psychological adaptation and personal competence, including substance abuse, suicidal behavior, emotional lability, excessive anger, aggression, alienation, and introversion.
  • APS scores represent the severity of disorder-specific symptomatology evaluated across different time periods. This close match between APS item content and DSM-IV criteria enhances clinical utility and facilitates ease of interpretation.
