Hassles & Uplifts

 

Authors: Richard S. Lazarus & Susan Folkman

The Hassles and Uplifts Scales (HSUP) measures respondents attitudes about daily situations defined as "hassles" and "uplifts." Instead of focusing on highly charged life events, the HSUP provides a comfortable way to evaluate positive and negative events that occur in each person's daily life. Clients are then empowered to develop strategies for dealing with hassles and enhancing the occurrence of uplifts in their daily lives.

The HSUP has three forms:

  • Daily Hassles Scale (DHS)
  • Daily Uplifts Scale (DUS)
  • Combined Scale (HSUP): Includes items selected from DHS and DUS. "HSUP" refers to this form and the instrument as a whole.
