The current study applied Latent Class Analysis methods to identify internalizing and externalizing symptoms in a sample of children and adolescents referred for anxiety disorders. Co variates, assessed from the perspective of youth and parents, included youth friendship (positive, negative), youth social skills, parental control, and parental acceptance were used to further distinguish the classes.
Overall, results indicated that a three class solution fit the data best. The first class, consisting of 36 participants (16%) was labeled the Internalizing-Externalizing Class. Class 2, the Anxious-Depressed Class consisted of 94 participants (43%). Lastly, Class 3, labeled the Non-Clinical Class included 90 participants (41 %).
