Beck Youth Inventories™ of Emotional and Social Impairment
Evaluate children's emotional and social impairment
The Beck Youth Inventories™ provide an accurate, efficient evaluation of children's emotional and social impairment. Five self-report inventories can be used separately or in combination to quickly assess symptoms of depression, anxiety, anger, disruptive behaviour and self-concept in children and early adolescents.
The Beck Youth Inventories™ use the same principles as the widely used Beck Scales of Depression, Anxiety, Hopelessness and Suicide Ideation. Each inventory contains 20 statements about thoughts, feelings, and behaviours associated with emotional and social impairment in youth - children describe how frequently the statement has been true for them. The instruments measure emotional and social impairment in five specific areas:
Beck Depression Inventory for Youth:
In line with the depression criteria of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health Disorders— Fourth Edition (DSM– IV), this inventory allows for early identification of symptoms of depression. It includes items related to a child's negative thoughts about self, life and the future, feelings of sadness and guilt and sleep disturbance.
Beck Anxiety Inventory for Youth:
Reflects children's specific worries about school performance, the future, negative reactions of others, fears including loss of control, and physiological symptoms associated with anxiety.
Beck Anger Inventory for Youth:
Evaluates a child's thoughts of being treated unfairly by others, feelings of anger and hatred.
Beck Disruptive Behavior Inventory for Youth:
Identifies thoughts and behaviours associated with conduct disorder and oppositional-defiant behaviour.
Beck Self-Concept Inventory for Youth:
Taps cognitions of competence, potency, and positive self-worth.
