Life Events

           Thank you for your inquiry about the Life Events and Posttraumatic Stress Modules of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Assessment (CAPA).

DESCRIPTION: the Life Events and Posttraumatic Stress Modules were developed by E.J. Costello, Ph.D., A. Angold, MRCPsych, and colleagues to collect information about events occurring in the life and environment of the subject that could pose a risk for resulting psychopathology. When painful recall, avoidance, or hyperarousal are associated with an event, the presence of symptoms of Posttraumatic Stress is explored. The modules are published as part of The Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Assessment (CAPA) by Angold, Cox, Prendergast, Rutter, and Simonoff.
