Child Behaviour CheckList (CBCL) Urdu

he Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) is a checklist parent complete to detect emotional and behavioural problems in children and adolescents. This factsheet describes the assessment and how to order this tool.

The CBCL is part of the Achenbach System of Empirically Based Assessment (ASEBA). There are two other components of the ASEBA – the Teacher’s Report Form (TRF) is to be completed by teachers and the Youth Self-Report (YSR) by the child or adolescent.

How it works

The CBCL/6-18 is to be used with children aged 6 to 18. It consists of 113 questions, scored on a three-point Likert scale (0=absent, 1= occurs sometimes, 2=occurs often). The time frame for item responses is the past six months.

The 2001 revision of the CBCL/6-18, is made up of eight syndrome scales:

    • anxious/depressed
    • depressed
    • somatic complaints
    • social problems
    • thought problems
    • attention problems
    • rule-breaking behaviour
    • aggressive behaviour.

These group into two higher-order factors–internalizing and externalizing.

The 2001 revision also added six DSM-oriented scales consistent with DSM diagnostic categories:

  • affective problems
  • anxiety problems
  • somatic problems
  • ADHD
  • oppositional defiant problems
  • conduct problems.

The CBCL (and the YSR) are also scored on (optional) competence scales for activities, social relations, school and total competence. In 2001, options for multicultural norms were added allowing scale scores to be displayed in relation to different sets of cultural/societal norms. Scales were also added for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
