CERQ is a questionnaire measuring cognitive coping strategies developed by Dr. Nadia Garnefski and Dr. Vivian Kraaij.
Publications concerning the CERQ as well as the publications of other research groups. In most cases pdf versions of the articles can be downloaded.
The CERQ is used to measure a response to negative life events. This can either be a specific response to a specific life event or a style of responding to negative life events in general. In the latter case the general self-report negative life events scale that we developed for our own projects - in Dutch only - might be used and adapted for specific purposes.
