Early Detection of Temperament Risk Factors – Article 2

The clinical utility of the Integrative Child Temperament Screener (ICTS) was recently supported in a study comparing clinical-referred and general population children (Zentner et al., 2021). The ICTS could differentiate between these two groups and even improved the screening accuracy of much longer questionnaires for behavioral symptoms. Furthermore, Frustration and Attention were higher in children with more emotional and behavior problems in general, whereas Inhibition was only higher in children with more internalizing problems. The results suggest a useful role for the ICTS in assessment, screening, and prevention.
