Eyberg Child Behaviour Inventory (ECBI)

The Eyberg Child Behaviour Inventory (ECBI) is a measure designed to assess the behaviour of children and adolescents at home as reported by their parents or guardians.

Age range

2–16 years, 11 months

Who can use it?

Mainly used by parents.

How is it used?

Descriptions are given for 36 behaviours, with parents asked to assess their child on a seven-point scale (one being never to seven being always) for the intensity score, and indicate if the behaviour is a problem or not (yes or no) for the problem score. The test can be used for individual, group and phone administration, and takes 5–10 minutes.
