Published online Mar In our clinical sample, mothers reported higher frequencies of disruptive behavior problems than fathers, for the same child. Both instruments are also suitable for group administration or for administration via telephone.


Adequate use of the ECBI for screening and treatment evaluation purposes requires knowledge regarding its psychometric properties in a Dutch community and clinical population. For all scales, correlations were lower between measures completed by fathers than those completed by mothers.
