To determine the reliability, validity, and usefulness of the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) and its supplements in the identification of conduct disorder, an extensive review of the literature cur rently available on the CBCL and its supplements was conducted. Research revealed that the CBCL and its supplements were reliable and valid. The extent of knowledge concerning its use fulness in detecting conduct disorder was somewhat limited; however, the available information suggested that the instruments were highly sensitive to the disorder, if not particularly specific. The CBCL and supplements are useful tools in social work practice, including the identification of conduct disorder, if used in combination with other assessment instruments.
