Clinical Assessment of Prosocial Emotions: Version 1.1(CAPE 1.1)

The Clinical Assessment of Prosocial Emotions: Version 1.1 (CAPE 1.1 )  is a copyright protected clinical guide for assessing the construct of callous-unemotional (CU) traits that form the specifier “with Limited Prosocial Emotions” in the criteria for Conduct Disorder in the 5th Edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5; American Psychiatric Association, 2013).  The CAPE 1.1 assesses CU traits consistent with the way that it is defined by the Inventory of Callous-Unemotional Traits (ICU), but allowing for clinicians to obtain richer information than can be gained from rating scales, to help in making diagnostic decisions based on the DSM-5 criteria.  The CAPE 1.1 Manual can be downloaded free of charge.

The CAPE 1.1 is a clinical assessment system that is under development.   That is, the method of assessment used by the CAPE 1.1 was guided by current research on the most critical indicators of CU traits and by many years of clinical experience working with children, adolescents, and their families.  While the CAPE 1.1 is being developed, users must obtain permission from me ( and agree to provide me with any published data involving the CAPE 1.1, so that a clinical database on the CAPE 1.1 can be developed.
