Life Events Checklist(LEC) for DSM-5
Listed below are a number of difficult or stressful things that sometimes happen to people. For each event check one or more of the boxes to the right to indicate that:
(a) it happened to you personally;
(b) you witnessed it happen to someone else;
(c) you learned about it happening to a close family member or close friend;
(d) you were exposed to it as part of your job (for example, paramedic, police, military, or other first responder);
(e) you’re not sure if it fits; or
(f) it doesn’t apply to you.
Be sure to consider your entire life (growing up as well as adulthood) as you go through the list of events.
