This unique self-report inventory with items written by children assesses depression. A downward extension of the highly regarded Multi-score Depression Inventory, the MDI-C lets youngsters indicate how they feel, giving you a child’s-eye view of their emotional world. It’s ideal for both routine screening and clinical assessment. The MDI-C is the first measure of childhood depression with items created by children, written in their own words. The MDI-C includes 79 true-false items on eight scales: Anxiety, Self-Esteem, Social Introversion, Instrumental Helplessness, Sad Mood, Pessimism, Low Energy, and Defiance. The inventory provides raw scores, percentiles, and normalized T-scores for each scale, plus a Total Score.
