Description: The ASEBA Brief Problem Monitor (ASEBA – BPM) provides normed multi-informant monitoring of children’s functioning & responses to interventions (RTIs). Completed in 1 to 2 minutes, the BPM is a rating instrument for monitoring children’s functioning and responses to interventions (RTIs). The BPM can also be used to compare children’s responses to different intervention and control conditions. The BPM includes items for rating Internalizing (INT), Attention (ATT), and Externalizing (EXT) problems over user-selected rating periods (e.g., 5, 7, 14, 30, 45 days). The items are drawn from the Child Behavior Checklist for Ages 6-18 (CBCL/6-18), Teacher’s Report Form (TRF), and Youth Self-Report (YRS) (Achenback & Rescorla, 2001). Each item is rated 0 = not true, 1 = somewhat true, or 2 = very true. Users can add  problems and/or strengths not already on the BPM, such as those that are especially targeted for change. Seperate forms are designed for completion by parents (BPM-P), teachers (BPM-T), and 11- to 18-year old youths (BPM-Y). Other informants–such as family members, staff in residential, inpatient, and detention facilities, school personnel, observers, and practitioners–can also complete the BPM-P and BPM-T. Many children younger than 11 may be able to complete the BPM-Y. The forms can be self-administered or administered by the interviewers in person or by telephone.
