Juvenile Disposition Assessment (JDA)
The Juvenile Disposition Assessment (JDA) is a 159-item computer scored self-report test designed specifically for juvenile (male and female) pre-disposition evaluation. The JDA assesses attitudes and behaviors important to juvenile adjustment profiles.
The JDA has nine scales (measures):
- Truthfulness Scale
- Suicide Scale
- Resistance Scale
- Self-Esteem Scale
- Violence Scale
- Alcohol Scale
- Drugs Scale
- Distress Scale
- Stress Coping Abilities Scale
JDA assists in deciding upon levels of supervision and incarceration alternatives. Early problem identification facilitates timely intervention and improved outcome.
