Professor Tom Ollendick has kindly allowed us to place the Fear Survey Schedule for Children on our website. It can now be downloaded for free.
The the Fear Survey Schedule for Children (FSSC-R) is an 80-item questionnaire designed to assess the intensity of fear associated with stimuli that are commonly reported by children to cause anxiety.
Each item is a potentially fearful situation or stimulus to which the respondent rates their level of fearfulness.
A total fear score is generated as well as five factors:
(1) fear of failure and criticism,
(2) fear of the unknown,
(3) fear of injury and small animals,
(4) fear of danger and death and
(5) medical fears.
