Abstract

Behaviour problems and competencies were studied in a community sample of 1653 French 6 to 11 year old children, and a clinically referred sample of 437 children of the same age group. Parental reports were collected with the Child Behaviour Checklist (CBCL). All scores from the CBCL were found to discriminate clinic and non-clinic children. Similarly, clinical status accounted for a significant proportion of the variance for most of the individual items, when the effects of age, sex and socio-economic status were controlled for in convariance analyses. The socio-demographic variables had much smaller effects, and, when compared with other studies, our results support the cross-cultural validity of this parental questionnaire.
