Emotion questionnaires: Questionnaires on Emotional Functioning and Understanding
With respect to the following questionnaires we have either had responsibility for their development and validation or we have taken part in a similar process. The questionnaires described here have all been developed for and tested on children and adolescents from 9 to 15 years. In principle, there is no upper-bound age limit, but questionnaires for mood, non-productive thoughts, somatic complaints, emotion regulation and emotional intelligence already exist for older adolescents and adults. 

For more information on the questionnaires, click on the menu on the right. Most of the questionnaires can be used freely; some can be downloaded from this website. If you want to print these questionnaires, make sure you print double-sided. This will produce a booklet.
