Acronym
CAARMS

Description
The CAARMS is an instrument that assesses psychopathology characteristic of the prodromal phase of psychotic disorders and may therefore indicate impending onset of psychosis. It is used to determine whether a person meets the UHR criteria and psychotic transition. This is a semi-structured interview consisting of seven subscales: positive symptoms, cognitive symptoms, emotional disturbances, negative symptoms, behavioural changes, physical or motor changes, and general psychopathology. Each of these subscales is scored for severity and frequency. The scores in each subscale range from 0 to 6. The CAARMS is also used to determine the existence of a temporal relationship between symptoms and the use of substances, as well as the date of onset and end of symptoms, therefore the duration of each subcategory of symptoms.

Acronym
DCS

Description
The Depressive Cognition Scale (DCS) is an eight-item instrument that measures hopelessness, helplessness, powerlessness, purposelessness, worthlessness, loneliness, emptiness, and meaninglessness (Zauszniewski, 1995). Based on Beck’s cognitive theory of depression and Erikson’s theory of psychosocial development (Zauszniewski, 1995), the DCS assesses depressive cognitions that may stem from the unsuccessful resolution of Erikson’s eight developmental stages (Zauszniewski, 1995). The instrument is a selfadministered eight-item scale scored on a 6-point Likert-type scale ranging from 0 = strongly disagree to 5 = strongly agree. ( Zauszniewski and Bekhet, 2012).

Acronym
DAWBA

Description
The Development and Well-Being Assessment (DAWBA) is a novel package of questionnaires, interviews, and rating techniques designed to generate ICD-10 and DSM-IV psychiatric diagnoses on 5-16-year-olds. Nonclinical interviewers administer a structured interview to parents about psychiatric symptoms and resultant impact. When definite symptoms are identified by the structured questions, interviewers use open-ended questions and supplementary prompts to get parents to describe the problems in their own words. These descriptions are transcribed verbatim by the interviewers but are not rated by them. A similar interview is administered to 11-16-year-olds. Teachers complete a brief questionnaire covering the main conduct, emotional, and hyperactivity symptoms and any resultant impairment. The different sorts of information are brought together by a computer program that also predicts likely diagnoses. These computer-generated summary sheets and diagnoses form a convenient starting point for experienced clinical raters, who decide whether to accept or overturn the computer diagnosis (or lack of diagnosis) in the light of their review of all the data, including transcripts. (Goodman et al, 2000)

Acronym
HADS

Description
A tool used to detect the levels of anxiety and depression that a patient is experiencing. The HADS is a fourteen item scale that generates ordinal data. Seven of the items relate to anxiety and seven relate to depression. Zigmond and Snaith created this outcome measure specifically to avoid reliance on aspects of these conditions that are also common somatic symptoms of illness, for example fatigue and insomnia or hypersomnia. This, it was hoped, would create a tool for the detection of anxiety and depression in people with physical health problems.
