HENZ, Kaena Garcia et al. CBCL/6-18 and TRF/6-18: contributions to psychological assessment. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2021, vol.15, n.3, pp. 1-22. ISSN 1982-1247.

Some of the most used instruments for children/adolescents' psychological assessment are the ASEBA forms. The objectives of this study were: to verify which scales would best discriminate three groups (control, neurodevelopmental diagnosis, and neurodevelopmental-emotional diagnosis) and to evaluate the diagnostic prediction of the subscales through discriminant analysis. Fifty-eight children/adolescents who answered the CBCL and TRF participated in the study. The subscales that discriminated better the control group from the neurodevelopmental group were School and Withdrawn/Depressed (CBCL) and the neurodevelopmental group from the neurodevelopmental and emotional group were Social Problems (CBCL) and Sluggish Cognitive Tempo (TRF). The results indicated good values ​​of diagnostic prediction from the subscales mentioned, indicating that these might be helpful for hypotheses formulation in psychological assessment.
