Concerns about Life and Family Disruption Scale


Concerns about Life and Family Disruption Scale

Scale in the Deployment Risk and Resilience Inventory-2
DRRI-2 Section: L
Survey Label: "Life and Family Concerns"


Measures worries that deployment might negatively affect other important life domains. These include primarily family-related concerns (e.g., damaging relationships with spouse or children or missing significant events such as birthdays, weddings, graduations, and deaths), as well as career-related concerns (i.e., losing a job or otherwise harming one's career).

Sample Item

  • Item: While I was deployed, I was concerned about the effect of the deployment on my relationship with my spouse or significant other.
  • Response: 4-point Likert (1 = "Not at all" to 4 = "A great deal"; additional option of 0 = "Not applicable")

To Obtain Scale

This measure was created by staff at VA's National Center for PTSD.
