Child and Family Center Youth Questionnaire

The Teen Questionnaire is an adapted measure from the Community Action for Successful Youth (CASY) questionnaire and CINT, and a parallel version to the CFCQP. The Teen Questionnaire contains 92 items split into 11 sections of questions about a variety of the child's experiences at home, at school, and with parents in the last three months, or in the last month. The sections deal with, in order, positive and helping behavior (e.g., cooperate with your teachers), parental knowledge and involvement (e.g., know about your plans for the coming day), parental rules and expectations (e.g., My parent(s) ____ that I should not use alcohol), feelings of trust and family closeness (e.g., Ate a meal with at least one of my parents), parental disagreements (e.g., We got angry at each other), peer rejection (e.g., criticized by peers for your looks or clothes), positive peer behavior (e.g., help with chores around their house), peer problem behavior (e.g., How many of your friends have cheated on school tests?), recent associations with peers who engage in problem behavior (e.g., take things that don't belong to them), problem behavior (e.g., Spent time with gang members as friends), and open-ended questions about life goals, stressors, interests and support systems.
