The SCS has long been regarded as a valuable part of the assessment process. Your client completes select sentence stems, helping you to identify underlying concerns and specific areas of distress.

  • Features 50 content-valid sentence stems; eight forms allow multiple form usage to maximize the breadth of information.
  • Assesses the following areas of concern: adult, adolescence, family, marriage, parenting, work, illness, and aging.
  • This self-report measure may be read aloud to those with inadequate reading skills
