The Recent Life Events Questionnaire

Recent Life Events QuestionnaireThe questionnaire focuses on recent life events (ie. those occurring in the last 12 months) but could be used over a longer time-scale. It is intended to assist in the compilation of a social history.
It is expected that the use of the scale will:
• result in a fuller picture of a family’s history and contribute to greater contextual
understanding of the family’s current situation;
• help practitioners explore how particular recent life events have affected the carer
and the family;
• in some situations, identify life events which family members have not reported
earlier
