Children's Depression Inventory - Second Edition (CDI-2)
The CDI-2 evaluates the presence and severity of specific depressive symptoms in children and adolescents so that you can develop a targeted treatment plan. Parent, teacher, and self-report ratings provide a comprehensive evaluation. The CDI is commonly used in schools, clinics, guidance centres, and medical pediatric settings by psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and mental health professionals.

CDI-2: Self-Report (CDI-2:SR)
The full-length CDI-2 Self-Report Form is ideal when assessors require a more robust description of the child's depressive symptoms. The CD-2:SR is 28-item assessment that yeilds a Total Score, two scale scores (Emotional Problems and Functional Problems), and four subscale scores.
CDI-2: Self-Report (Short) Version (CDI-2:SR(S))
The CDI-2:SR(S) Form is an efficient screening measure that contains 12 items and takes about half the time of the full-length version to administer (5–10 minutes).The CDI-2:SR(S) has excellent psychometric properties and yields a Total Score that is generally very comparable to the one produced by the full-length version.
CDI-2: Teacher (CDI-2:T) and CDI-2 Parent (CDI-2:P)
The CDI-2:T and CDI-2:P Forms consist of items that correspond to the self-report version and are suitably rephrased. Item selection for the parent and teacher forms was guided to maximize validity, and thus focused on observable manifestations of depression.
CDI-2 is available online only. Contact NZCER for further information.
