I➜The Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale for Children (commonly abbreviated BPRS-C scale), is a 21-items clinician-based rating scale designed for use in evaluating psychiatric problems of children and adolescents. It was developed to provide a descriptive profile of symptoms applicable to a broad range of child and adolescent psychiatric disorders and is increasingly used as an outcome measure in research, managed care, and public sector child/adolescent clinical settings.
Ratings are based on a 7 point Likert scale, from "Not Present" (scores 0) to "Extremely Severe" (scores 6 points).
