The Young Adult Psychiatric Assessment (YAPA), developed by A. Angold, A. Cox, M. Prendergast, M. Rutter, E. Simonoff, E.J. Costello, and B.H. Ascher, is a modification of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Assessment (CAPA).
The YAPA is an interviewer-based structured diagnostic interview designed for use with young adults 18 years and older. There is no “parent interview” schedule for the YAPA. The YAPA is used for the diagnosis of the full range of common psychiatric disorders. It provides a focus on diagnoses, living situations, relationships, and areas of functioning relevant to this age group.
The following documents are for review only. Formal training is required to administer the YAPA (see details below).
