That CAD is a 50-item self-report instrument that is sensitive to depressive symptomatology throughout the lifespan. It includes three validity scales (inconsistency, negative impression, and infrequency), a CAD total scale, symptom scales (depressed mood, anxiety/worry, diminished interest, and cognitive and physical fatigue), and critical item clusters (hopelessness, self-devaluation, sleep/fatigue, failure, worry, and nervousness).
