About us

We are researchers from Middlesex University, Kings College London and Goldsmiths University collaborating on a three year ESRC funded project to develop a new online Computerised Life Event Assessment Record (CLEAR). We hope to develop a new methodology – the Inter-Q – that captures the benefits of both face-to-face and questionnaire approaches to measuring life events.

We also have an International Scientific Advisory Board of academics and clinicians involved in life stress measurement in their longitudinal cohorts or practice to ensure the end product meets the needs of its likely users.
