Description: The Multidimensional Anxiety Scale for Children 2nd edition (MASC – 2) is a comprehensive, multi-rater assessment of anxiety dimensions in children and adolescents aged 8 to 19 years. The MASC 2 indexes the range and severity of anxiety symptoms, and can be a useful adjunct to the process of diagnosing anxiety disorders. The MASC 2 can aid in the early identification of anxiety-prone youths, as well as help to monitor treatment effects.

  • Assesses a broad range of emotional, physical, cognitive and behavioral symptoms that represent important dimensions of childhood anxiety
  • Multi-rater assessment with parent and self-report ratings in order to gather in-depth, multi-perspective information
  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) Index differentiates children with the disorder from the general population
  • Computer-generated reports that describe a youth’s anxiety symptoms in detail

Scales: Separation Anxiety/Phobias; GAD Index; Social Anxiety; Obsessions & Compulsions; Physical Symptoms; Harm Avoidance; Inconsistency Index (response style)

Forms: The MASC 2 is a multi-rater assessment with 50-item self (MASC 2–SR) and parent (MASC 2–P) rating forms.

Assessment Reports – Provide information about a single MASC 2 administration including the youth’s scores, how he/she compares to other children, and which scales and subscales are elevated.
Progress Reports – Provide an overview of change over time by combining and comparing results of up to four administrations.
Comparative Reports – Compare the responses provided by the child with those provided by the child’s parent(s), thereby offering an overview of the child’s anxiety symptom status from multiple perspectives.
