The dysregulation profile in children and adolescents: a potential index for major psychopathology?

Epidemiol Psychiatr Sci. 2012 Jun;21(2):155-9. doi: 10.1017/S2045796011000849.


We here review the literature on Child Behaviour Checklist-Dysregulation Profile (CBCL-DP) index, which potentially represents a developmental profile of major psychopathology in early adulthood. The understanding of the neural underpinnings of children and adolescents with altered regulation of affect and behaviour may ultimately help in planning strategies to prevent psychiatric syndromes during development.
