Abstract

This paper presents the Israeli norms for the Achenbach Child Behavior Checklist. Questionnaire data were collected on a clinically-referred sample (N = 2227) and a non-referred sample (N = 1275) of children between the ages of 4-16. Basic descriptive data for total behavior scores and scores for broad-band and narrow-band syndromes by sex, age group, and clinical status are presented. The mean total behavior score in the non-referred sample is similar to that reported for American and Dutch samples. For the Israeli referred sample, the mean total behavior score was considerably lower than that reported for the American and Dutch samples. Issues involved in selecting an optimal cutoff point to discriminate between clinically-referred and non-referred populations are discussed.
