The BDI is a self-report inventory composed of 21 items related to measuring the severity of depression in adults and adolescents. It can be used with, but is not limited to, persons with SCI.
The Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) is one of the most widely used screening instruments for measuring the severity of depression in adults and adolescents. Named after its creator Aaron T. Beck, the BDI was originally published in 1961 as the BDI, revised as the BDI-1A in 1978, and published as the BDI-II in 1996. It is a self-report inventory composed of 21 items relating to depressive symptoms (hopelessness and irritability), cognitions (guilt or feelings of being punished), and physical symptoms (fatigue, weight loss, and lack of interest in sex). There are currently no studies reporting psychometric properties for the BDI other than Interpretability values for the SCI population at this time.
