The Social Readjustment Rating Scale (SRRS) is a measure of the stress (social readjustment) expected from events in your life. Social readjustment refers to the amount and duration of change in one's accustomed pattern of life resulting from an event, regardless of the desirability of the event -- positive events entail readjustment, too. The emphasis is on change from the existing steady state and not on psychological meaning, emotion, or social desirability. The idea here is to help you keep a record of this.

Registration is required, but this isn't like posting, what you submit here won't be public. Neither is this research. There might be research later, but in that case, it would be up to you whether to be involved or not. Please see Psycho-Babble Administration for discussion about these and other issues.
