Abstract

The psychometric properties and cross-informant agreement of the German version of the "Screen for Child Anxiety Related Emotional Disorders" (SCARED) were assessed in a clinical sample. 77 children and adolescents aged 11 to 18 years in outpatient psychotherapy and 66 parents filled out the SCARED and Youth Self Report (YSR) or Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL), respectively. In n = 57 cases both parent and self-report was available. The German SCARED is shown to have good convergent and divergent validity compared with YSR/CBCL scales. The total score discriminated between children with an anxiety disorder and children with another psychiatric disorder. Cross-informant agreement was moderate with children reporting more and more severe anxiety symptoms than their parents. In conclusion, both the parent and the child version of the German SCARED proved valid. In clinical settings the integration of data from both perspectives seems important.
