Beck Youth Inventories™ - Second Edition (BYI-II)

J.S. Beck, A.T. Beck & J.B. Jolly

Now assess your clients to age 18 years assuring confidence in your clinical decision making, while helping you plan effective intervention.

The new Beck Youth Inventories™ -Second Edition (BYI-II) for Children and Adolescents are designed for children and adolescents aged 7 to 18 years.

Five self-report inventories can be used separately or in combination to assess symptoms of depression, anxiety, anger, disruptive behaviour and self-concept.

Five Inventories

The Beck Youth Inventories™ -Second Edition use the same principles as the widely used Beck Scales of Depression, Anxiety, Hopelessness and Suicide Ideation.

Each inventory contains 20 statements about thoughts, feelings and behaviours associated with emotional and social impairment in youth. Children and adolescents describe how frequently the statement has been true for them.

The instruments measure emotional and social impairment in five specific areas:

Beck Depression Inventory for Youth:

In line with the depression criteria of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health Disorders—Fourth Edtion (DSM-IV) this inventory allows for early identification of symptoms of depression. It includes items related to a child's or adolescent's negative thought about self, life and the future, feelings of sadness, guilt and sleep disturbance.

Beck Anxiety Inventory for Youth:

Reflects children's and adolescents' specific worries about school performance, the future, negative reactions of others, fears including loss of control, and disturbance.

Beck Anger Inventory for Youth:

Evaluates a child's or adolescent's thoughts of being treated unfairly by others, feelings of anger and hatred.

Beck Disruptive Behavior Inventory for Youth:

Identifies thoughts and behaviours associated with conduct disorder and oppositional-defiant behaviour.

Beck Self-Concept Inventory for Youth:

Taps cognitions of competence, potency, and positive self-worth.

BYI-II Bridges the gap between the Beck Depression Inventory for adults and the BYI.
