BDI-2 Self-Report Inventory

Decent Essays
The BDI-II is a self-report inventory designed to assess the severity and presence of depression. The scale could discriminate clinically depressed persons from non-clinical groups (Beck, Steer, & Brown, 1996). The brief Hungarian version of BDI-II consists of 9 items and its psychometric properties were found to be similar to the original scale. Items are answered on a 4-point Likert- type scale (‘0’ = symptom is not present to ‘3’ = symptom is very intense) and total scores from 0 (no depression) to 36 (severe depression) (Rózsa, Szádóczky, & Füredi, 2001).
