Intentions : « This article provides a critical examination of 16 instruments of behavioural disturbance. Information about the domain, the types of rating scales, and the psychometric properties of these instruments are provided. Finally, two major issues in the development of new knowledge on behavioural disturbance are discussed: the further validation of its multidimensional nature, and the heuristic value of the stress-coping approach in providing some theoretical distinction among the variety of scales used to rate it. » (p. 276)
