Lachar, David; And Others – Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1984
Attempted to expand the construct validity of the profile and factor scales for the Personality Inventory for Children (PIC) by determining the relationship of these scales to empirically derived dimensions of problem behaviors in children and adolescents (N=691). Results provided substantial evidence of convergent and discriminant validity. (LLL)

Lachar, David; Gdowski, Charles L. – Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1979
Investigated relationships between empirically determined dimensions of problem behaviors and profile scales of the Personality Inventory for Children. Correlation matrices allowed identification of scale to correlates and their variation by age or sex and facilitated estimates of generalizability of the data. Results provided evidence of scale…

DeHorn, Allan B.; And Others – Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1979
Explores the utility of reciprocal two-point code type classifications of Personality Inventory for Children (PIC) profiles and evaluates a second classification scheme based upon groupings of empirically and conceptually similar PIC code types. Results indicate a profile classification strategy can be usefully applied to PIC protocols. (Author)

The six-factor solution provided sufficiently robust item clusters to develop scales reflecting Undisciplined/Poor Self-Control, Social Incompetence, Internalization/Somatic Symptoms,…
