Everyday Stressors Index - deutsche Fassung
The ESI, adapted from the Everyday Stressors Index (ESI) of Hall (1983) into German, serves to assess everyday problems and stress, especially for young mothers with a low socioeconomic status. Everyday stressors are considered good indicators of adjustment difficulties and are attributed a higher prediction of psychological symptoms than stressful life events. The asked for stressors are financial and interpersonal problems, role stress, job problems and parental worries (k = 19). The assessment of mothers' everyday stress is of particular relevance, as it can have an impact on children's educational and developmental opportunities. Reliability: The internal consistency of the questionnaire was determined with Cronbach's Alpha and was Alpha = .86. Validity: No information on the validity of the German procedure is available.
