# What is Difficulties: Definition and 76 Discussions

The Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) is a self-report inventory behavioral screening questionnaire for children and adolescents ages 2 through 17 years old, developed by United Kingdom child psychiatrist Robert N. Goodman. The SDQ has been translated into more than 80 languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Russian, and Portuguese. Overall, the SDQ has been proven to have satisfactory construct and concurrent validity.There are three versions of the SDQ: a short form, a longer form with impact supplement, and a follow-up form designed for use after a behavioral intervention. The questionnaire takes 3–10 minutes to complete.

1. ### I am having some difficulties solving a combination circuits problem

I'm having difficulties finding the current for a 9-ohm resistor only, not the 20-ohm My attempt was to find the voltage of a 20ohm resistor which is V = (0.75A)(20-ohm) = 15V. I got the 0.75A by adding the currents of the two resistors (8-ohm and 16-ohm) together that were in parallel and it...
2. ### A What are the difficulties of the rishon model?

The risbon model model was inveted by Harari in 1981. It is a theory that lies beyond the standard model and explains the existence of quarks and leptons on the basis of jusr 2 elementary particles, the T- and V-rishon (heuristically that is, like the quark model did once for the plethora of...
