This 30-item self-report measures the four basic dimensions of depression: Dysphoric Mood, Anhedonia/Negative Affect, Negative Self- Evaluation, and Somatic Complaints. The RADS-2 standard scores and associated clinical cutoff score provide an indication of the clinical severity of the individual’s depressive symptoms.
•Scores are plotted on a Summary/Profile Form, allowing comparison of elevations across subscales.
•A Depression Total score represents the overall severity of depressive symptomatology.
•An empirically derived clinical cutoff score helps to identify adolescents who may be at risk for a depressive disorder or a related disorder. Data demonstrate the ability of this cutoff score to discriminate between adolescents with major depressive disorder and an age- and gender-matched control group.
•The six RADS-2 critical items are those that have been identified as being most predictive of a depressive disorder diagnosis.
•Standardized with a school-based sample of 3,300 adolescents that was stratified to reflect 2000 U.S. Census data for gender and ethnicity.
•Reliability and validity studies included a school-based sample of more than 9,000 adolescents and a clinical sample of adolescents with DSM-III-R™ or DSM-IV™ diagnoses who were evaluated in both school and clinical settings.
