The BYI-2 helps you evaluate children's and adolescents' emotional and social impairment.

  • Self-concept

The BYI-2 can be used to:

  • Track an individual over time on the same group of integrated instruments

  • Identify potential vulnerability to bully/victimization
  • Monitor response to interventions

Technical Information

Now assess your clients to age 18 assuring confidence in your clinical decision making, while helping you plan effective intervention. The new Beck Youth Inventories™ -Second Edition (BYI-2) for Children and Adolescents are designed for children and adolescents ages 7 through 18 years. Five self-report inventories can be used separately or in combination to assess symptoms of depression, anxiety, anger, disruptive behavior, and self-concept.

Five Inventories
The Beck Youth Inventories™ -Second Edition use the same principles as the widely used Beck Scales of Depression, Anxiety, Hopelessness and Suicide Ideation. Each inventory contains 20 statements about thoughts, feelings, and behaviours associated with emotional and social impairment in youth. Children and adolescents describe how frequently the statement has been true for them. The instruments measure emotional and social impairment in five specific areas:

  • Beck Depression Inventory for Youth:
    In line with the depression criteria of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health Disorders— Fourth Edition (DSM– IV), this inventory allows for early identification of symptoms of depression. It includes items related to a child's or adolescent's negative thoughts about self, life and the future, feelings of sadness and guilt and sleep disturbance.

  • Beck Anxiety Inventory for Youth:
    Reflects children's and adolescents' specific worries about school performance, the future, negative reactions of others, fears including loss of control, and physiological symptoms associated with anxiety.

  • Beck Anger Inventory for Youth:
    Evaluates a child's or adolescent's thoughts of being treated unfairly by others, feelings of anger and hatred.

  • Beck Disruptive Behavior Inventory for Youth:
    Identifies thoughts and behaviours associated with conduct disorder and oppositional-defiant behaviour.

  • Beck Self-Concept Inventory for Youth:
    Taps cognitions of competence, potency, and positive self-worth.

BYI-2 bridges the gap between the Beck Depression Inventory for adults and the BYI, and helps you:

  • Save time with brief screening tools to use by gatekeepers.

  • Track students over time on the same group of integrated instruments.

  • Assess adolescents with special needs and low reading level.

  • Identify impaired children for referral to more extensive assessment services.

  • Identify potential vulnerability to bully/victimization.

  • Administer individually or in a group.

  • Compare BYI-2 Profiles of teens to BYI-2 Profiles of clinical diagnostic groups.

  • Examine strength of BYI-2 Self Concept measure relative to symptom strength in planning interventions.

  • Monitor response to interventions.

  • Align your assessment with DSM-IV criteria.
