Cooperating with Prof. George Slavich at the University of California we translated the Stress and Adversity Inventory (STRAIN) into german. STRAIN is an online tool that assesses a person’s exposure to stress over the life course. Differentiating between acute and chronic events it measures frequency, severity and duration of each event. Completing the inventory with more than 200 items takes around 30 minutes. The translation of the inventory was furthermore part of a master thesis at the department. The validation of the german version started in January 2017.
