How is the Total Problems score used?

Answer:  The Total Problems score provides a global index of the child's problems, as seen by the respondent.  We have found that a Total Problems T score of 60 provides a good cutpoint for discriminating between clinically referred and non-referred children (see Chapter 2 for details of cutpoints).  The Total Problems score can also be used as a basis for comparing problems in different groups and for assessing change as a function of time or interventions.
