Brian Piper has been notified that his co-authored article “Reliability and Validity of the Brief Problem Monitor, an Abbreviated Form of the Child Behavior Checklist” is in press for the Psychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences Journal (doi:10.1111/pcn.12188).
The research was done collaboratively with colleagues H.M. Gray (Department of Behavioral Neuroscience, Oregon Health and Science University and Department of Counselor Education, Portland State University), Raber (Department of Behavioral Neuroscience, Oregon Health and Science University and Department of Neurology & Division of Neuroscience, ONPRC, Oregon Health & Science University) and Birkett (Department of Psychology, Northern Arizona University). Their study verified that the Brief Problem Monitor (BPM), an abbreviated form of the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL), had a high correlation with the CBCL. Because the BPM took less time to administer it allows clinicians to more easily determine the potential presence of behavioral and emotional problems. The CBCL is widely utilized by child psychiatrists and psychologists working with parents to identify behavioral disorders in children.
