Beck Depression Inventory-II
by Aaron T. Beck, MD
Age Range: 17-80
Type: Self report
Scales: Total depression score, based on ratings that measure the degree of
depression. The questionnaire asks about the behavioral, cognitive and emotional
symptoms the rater has recently experienced.
The Beck keeps getting better. You can assess depression with the Beck Depression
Inventory®-II (BDI-II), which is in line with the depression criteria
of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition
(DSM-IV). This new edition of the Beck Depression Inventory®, the most
widely used instrument for detecting depression, takes just five minutes to
complete and is more clinically sensitive than ever.
Like its predecessor, 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.
