Family Events Scale (FMEVE)

Family Events Checklist - Parent (OSLC, 1985). This instrument includes 54 items which measure the occurrence of daily hassles and internal crises within the family. The respondent is asked to designate which of many negative events have occured in the last week and describe the level of negative effects on the respondent caused by the event. The instrument also includes three blanks for the respondent to include any other stressful events that ocurred in the last week. The measure has been used across several projects at OSLC and the CFC. Fischer and Fagot (1990) found three internally consistent scales: Daily Hassles, Economic Stress, and Internal Family Conflict. The scales differentiated low-risk from high-risk samples.
