Social Experience Questionnaire
The Social Experience Questionnaire - Self Report (SEQ-S) measures children's reports of relational victimization, overt victimization, and receipt of prosocial acts. The SEQ-S measures the frequency with which peers attempt or threaten to harm their peer relationships, other children attempt or threaten to harm their physical well-being, and they are the targets of peers' caring acts. A peer version of this questionnaire also exists. The information below pertains to the self-report version.
