Children's Depression Inventory (CDI)

The 27-item CDI is a self-report inventory used to measure depressive symptoms in children and adolescents between the ages of 7 to 17. Each item is a set of statements from which the respondent is to select three that best describes their thoughts and feelings in the past two weeks. A total score ranging from 0-54 is based on a five factor solution. The factors are mood, interpersonal problems, ineffectiveness, anhedonia, and negative self-esteem. A score above 19 suggests clinically significant depression.
