Abstract/Description: The study examined the utility of the Adolescent Psychopathology Scale - Short Form (APS-SF) as a screening instrument for assessment of the mental health needs of incoming juveniles within a Department of Juvenile Justice residential facility. The APS-SF was compared to a well-validated, semi-structured diagnostic interview, the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV Childhood Diagnoses (KID-SCID), within a sample of 50 male juvenile offenders, 14 to 19 years of age. Overall, the findings offer modest support for the use of the APS-SF as a screener for mental health problems within juvenile justice settings.
