The present study examines the Adolescent Psychopathology Scale (APS). The participants include 113 clinical patients in a psychiatric hospital. The purpose of this study is to investigate the significant differences between the participants diagnosed with conduct disorder, and their scores on the APS sub-scale for conduct disorder. Additionally, we will examine gender differences as well as levels of aggression in participants with conduct disorder in relation to the APS scores. We anticipate that the participants diagnosed with conduct disorder will have higher scores on the conduct disorder sub-scale of the APS. We also hypothesize the any gender difference that may occur will be a main effect of male participants demonstrating higher scores on the aggression sub-scale and conduct disorder sub-scale than females. Lastly, we anticipate that participants with conduct disorder will have higher scores of aggression on the APS.
