Are there short forms that take less time to fill out?

Answer:  There are no authorized short forms.  Most respondents can complete the CBCL/6-18, YSR, or TRF in about 15 to 20 minutes.  Data from subsets of items cannot be compared to our reliability, validity, and normative data.  Consequently, it would not make sense to abbreviate the forms.  However, if time is at a premium, respondents can omit the open-ended items at the bottom of page 2.  If users wish to obtain data for only the competence or adaptive scales (pp. 1-2) or only problem scales (pp. 3-4), respondents can be asked to omit the unwanted pages.
