Child Behavior Profile Patterns of Children Referred for Clinical Services.
Edelbrock, Craig S.; Achenback, Thomas M.
The paper describes the development and use of the Child Behavior Profile, a measure of behavioral problems and competencies standardized for each sex at ages 4 to 5, 6 to 11, and 12 to 16. Cluster analysis is explained to have produced six reliable profile types for boys 6-11 years old; five reliable profile types for boys 12 through 16 years old; six types for girls aged 6 through 11; and seven for girls 12 through 16. Followup data is cited to show that the Child Behavior Profile can be used in research on the relationships between child characteristics and the effectiveness of various services. (CL)
