APSD Self-Report Version

The self-report version of the Antisocial Process Screening Device (APSD-SR) is a copyright protected measure of several dimensions that have proven important for understanding antisocial behavior in children and adolescents:  Callous-Unemotional Traits, Narcissism, and Impulsivity. Researchers can download and use the APSD Youth Version free of charge in their work. The only requirements is that copies of any publications using the APSD-SR are sent to pfrick@lsu.edu.There is no manual for the APSD-SR. Several studies which describe the development of the scale and initial tests of its validity can be obtained here.
