Using self‐reported callous‐unemotional traits to cross‐nationally assess the DSM‐5 ‘With Limited Prosocial Emotions’ specifier
The presence of callous‐unemotional (CU) traits designates an important subgroup of antisocial youth at risk for severe, persistent, and impairing conduct problems. As a result, the fifth revision of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual includes a specifier for youth meeting diagnostic criteria for Conduct Disorder who show elevated CU traits. The current study evaluated the DSM‐5 criteria using Item Response Theory (IRT) analyses and evaluated two methods for using a self‐report measure of CU traits to make this diagnosis.
