Detect antisocial characteristics and processes in young children ages 6 to 13 years


APSD™

Overview

Overview

The APSD is an instrument that detects antisocial characteristics and processes in young children (6 to 13 years) so that preventative measures can be taken at an early age. Early identification and intervention can prevent these tendencies from leading to crime and other destructive behaviours.

Reliability and Validity

Reliability and Validity

Normative Data

Normative Data

Parents and teachers rate the child on a dimensional scale that probes interpersonal, affective, and behavioral traits. The normative-based APSD–Combined form (APSD–C) allows you to integrate and reconcile responses from parents and teachers after they have completed the APSD–Parent (APSD–P) and the APSD–Teacher (APSD–T) forms. Each form takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.

Reliability

Reliability of the APSD has been found throughout its development and includes:

  • Internal consistency, interrater reliability, and test-retest reliability
  • Exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis
  • Discriminant validity and scale intercorrelations
  • Associations between DSM-IV symptoms and APSD dimensions

Validity

Additionally, several controlled experimental studies demonstrating the APSD's validity have been conducted. The areas of research covered include:

  • Reward Dominance, examining the association between a reward-dominant response style and anxiety, conduct problems, and psychopathy in children
  • Moral/Conventional Distinction, using a moral distinction task to compare children with or without psychopathic tendencies
  • Psychophysiological Responsiveness to Distress, examining the psychophysiological responsiveness of children with psychopathic tendencies to distress cues and threatening stimuli

The normative samples consisted of 1,120 nonreferred and nonadjudicated elementary school children from the third, fourth, sixth, and seventh grades.
