Table 9 shows that there is a significant difference in means between pretest and posttest CBCL
scores, indicating improvement on all three scales: (a) CBCLi 1 and CBCLi2, (b) CBCLe1 and CBCLe2, and (c) CBCLt1 and CBCLt2.
is a measure of overall severity of behavioral problems in children of 4 -18 years.
All participants completed the CBCL

Internalizing and externalizing behaviors were measured with the corresponding subscales of the CBCL
assesses behavioural or maladaptive behaviours, competencies and adaptive functioning in children.
To partial out the unique effects of the indicators of the latent constructs, caregiver social network, and mental health/alcohol use on child mental health need, we performed subsequent correlational analyses among the set of predictors as well as two hierarchical regression analyses with the CBCL
internalizing and externalizing t scores as the dependent variables (see Tables 1 through 3).
and the SDQ measure parental reports of child behaviour.
Several other demographic and clinical variables have been investigated with respect to inter-rater consistency on the CBCL
and its supplements.
