Novel Measures of Psychosocial Stress Exposure

Principal Investigator: Elaine Wethington

This National Institute of Drug Abuse-funded project is developing two computer-based measures of exposure to psychosocial stressors. The first is a web-based one-year retrospective interview establishing exposure to chronic and acute stressors over a one-year recall period. The second is a phone-based Ecological Momentary Assessment method. The work is being undertaken with collaborators at the University of Pittsburgh and Columbia University.
