Assessment of the expression & regulation of anger in youth aged 10 to 17 years
The ARES is a comprehensive, self-report assessment of the expression and regulation of anger in youth. Derived from the Anger Disorder Scale (ADS™; DiGiuseppe & Tafrate, 2004; page 98), the ARES has been designed specifically for children and adolescents aged 10 to 17 years.
Assesses tendencies towards inward and outward expressions of anger, along with the range and duration of anger experiences
Based on more features and expressions of anger than any other measure
Offers treatment and intervention suggestions based on respondent's ARES scores
Excellent reliability and validity
Easy administration, scoring, and report interpretation
Assessment Reports provide detailed information about scores from a single administration, presented both numerically and graphically. An individual's scores are compared to those in the normative sample and elevations at the scale and subscale level are indicated.
Progress Reports compare the results of two to four administrations for the same individual to measure changes over time. These reports are ideal to use when monitoring treatment and intervention effectiveness.
The ARES has both a full-length and short version. A decision concerning which version to administer will largely depend on the assessor's needs and the rater's availability.
Consists of 75 items that yield 25 scores that assessing aspects of anger that contribute to poor functioning and maladjustment (i.e., the Total Score, the Cluster Scores, and the Scale and Subscale scores) This comprehensive version is recommended for use when a thorough evaluation of behaviors is desired.
Contains a subset of 17 items from the full-length form, and provides information across three major domains of anger (i.e. Internalizing Anger, Externalizing Anger, and Extent of Anger). This form can be used as a screener and is also suitable for monitoring the impact of a treatment or intervention program.
The ARES normative sample of included 800 youth from the general population. The normative sample includes 50 boys and 50 girls from each age with a racial/ethnic distribution that closely matches that of the U.S. population (U.S. Bureau of the Census, 2000).
