Meta-stereotypes Questionnaire

We have developed a questionnaire for middle childhood and adolescence to assess meta-stereotypes within the PhD project of Bettina de Jong. This is in collaboration with Dr. Koomen en Dr. De Jong.

Somatic Complaint List

The Somatic Complaint List is an 11 item questionnaire assessing the frequency of common childhood somatic complaints.

Non-Productive Thoughts Questionnaire-Kids

The Non-Productive Thoughts Questionnaire-Kids is a 10 item questionnaire assessing worry and ruminative thoughts in children.

Sense of Coherence Questionnaire

The Dutch version of the Sense of Coherence Questionnaire for children is available. This is a 13-item questionnaire based on the questionnaire of Torsheim, Aaroe, and Wold (2001). It assesses whether children view situations in life as comprehensible, managable and meaningful.
