Overview

The BDI-II is one of the most commonly used outcome measures in the world to demonstrate treatment efficacy and monitor treatment progress for depressed patients.

Use the BDI-II to:

  • Assess patients diagnosed as depressed
  • Detect depression among the normal population

The BDI-II consists of 21 items; each item is a list of four statements arranged in increasing severity about a particular symptom of depression.

The BDI-II contains a new scale that explores agitation, worthlessness and concentration difficulty, replacing items that dealt with symptoms of weight loss, changes in body image, and somatic preoccupation. These new items bring the BDI–II into alignment with DSM–IV criteria.

Q-global® Administration Options

This product is available on Q-global with the following administration options:

On-Screen Administration (OSA)

Your clients can complete these assessments online through Q-global. Alternatively, your client can complete the assessment in paper-pencil format, and their responses can then be data-entered into Q-global for scoring and report generation. On Screen Administrations are proctored (supervised) unless specifically indicated.

Remote On-Screen Administration (ROSA)
These assessments can be emailed to clients, teachers, or parents, so that the assessment can be completed at their own location. These assessments are not proctored (supervised).

Features

The Beck Depression Inventory—Second Edition (BDI–II) is the latest edition of the BDI, one of the most commonly used outcome measures in the world to demonstrate treatment efficacy and monitor treatment progress for depressed patients.

New Items

Just like the BDI, the BDI-II consists of 21 items to assess the intensity of depression in clinical and normal patients. Each item is a list of four statements arranged in increasing severity about a particular symptom of depression. These new items bring the BDI–II into alignment with DSM–IV criteria.

Items on the new scale that explore agitation, worthlessness and concentration difficulty have replaced items that dealt with symptoms of weight loss, changes in body image, and somatic preoccupation. Another item on the BDI that tapped work difficulty was revised to examine loss of energy. Also, sleep loss and appetite loss items were revised to assess both increases and decreases in sleep and appetite.

New Age Range

The BDI-II offers a new age range, extending downward to 13 years of age. The time reference for the response set has changed from one week to two and the BDI-II directions are more consistent with DSM–IV guidelines that require assessing depressive symptoms over the preceding two weeks.
