The 60 families included 20 containing a child with an emotional disorder, 20 containing a child with a mixed disorder of emotions and conduct; and 20 in which none of the children presented with clinically significant difficulties. The three rating scales accurately classified 85-90% of normal controls; 70-90% of cases containing a child with a mixed disorder of emotions and conduct; and 55-65% of families containing a child with an emotional disorder. On the rating scales, the Beavers and McMaster models showed particularly high levels of sensitivity in detecting clinical cases, whereas the Circumplex rating scale was particularly good at classifying nonclinical cases accurately.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Wiley-Blackwell||Copyright (published version):||2000 Wiley-Blackwell||Keywords:||Circumplex rating scale;Beavers model;McMaster model;Circumplex model||DOI:||10.1111/1467-6427.00148||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
