Difficult Life Circumstances Pad & Manual

Difficult Life Circumstances Pad & Manual


2nd Edition - The DLC is a 38 item Yes/No assessment that evaluates the existence of stressors or chronic challenges in families. The new DLC is organized so that both clinicians and researchers can easily use it to describe an individual or population. The revised tool is organized into six major domains of stressors which can be totaled and examined individually: Financial, Housing/Transportation, Health, Personal, Child, and Partner Issues. Each item provides a window into the caregiver's lived experiences and allows for a more responsive service provision by the provider.   (100/pad)
