Multidimensional Anxiety Scale for Children (MASC)ΒΆ

The MASC is a normed 39-item self-report questionnaire that assesses anxiety in children and adolescents. It uses four basic scales (physical symptoms, harm avoidance, social anxiety, and separation/panic), one scale measuring total anxiety, and two additional indexes, anxiety disorder and inconsistency. Participants are asked to rate their own behavior on a 4-point scale: 0-Never true about me, 1-Rarely true about me, 2-Sometimes true about me, 3-Often true about me.

Domains Assessed: Anxiety, Somatic Complaints

Note: This assessment will be given to children ages 8-18 years old.
