Background:
These are questions that have been used in various CCH assessments. Assessments will either include all of the questions or a selected portion. These questions do not represent a scale.

However, several of the items are similar to the Life Events Questionnaire (12 items, pertaining to life events in past 12 months) Cohen, (Cohen et al, 1983).
