Description

The Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging Webinar Series presents:

Factorial Invariance of the Centre for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale (CES-D)

Speaker: Megan E. O'Connell, Ph.D., R.D. Psych

This webinar focuses upon the Centre for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale (CES-D). A 10-item short form (CES-D-10) used in the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA) measures two distinct factors related to depressive systems: depressed affect and lack of positive affect. Dr. O'Connell will explore how respondent characteristics (e.g., language, age) impact how the CES-D-10 measures depression.

Dr. Megan O'Connell is an associate professor of psychology at the University of Saskatchewan. She practices clinical neuropsychology at the interdisciplinary Rural and Remote Memory Clinic and researches the use of technology for rural dementia care. Dr. O'Connell is a member of the Psychology Working Group in the CLSA. She is currently working with a CLSA team in developing normative papers for the neuropsychological batteries and psychometric properties of the depression state.
