Information about the CORE-5
The CORE-10 was very popular with practitioners, reflecting a huge shift away from longer measures over the last two decades, the CORE-5 is the shortest CORE instrument and represents, we believe, the shortest acceptable measure for practitioners or clients impatient with anything longer. It can be used sessionally or as a short screening measure though with only one wellbeing item, two problem, two functioning and no risk items, we recommend extreme caution in comparing CORE-5 scores with scores on longer CORE measures and clearly, prorating is not appropriate.
Referencing the CORE-5
There is no canonical paper about the CORE-5 yet though one is in preparation and will be submitted soon (as of 3/4/15). If you’re signed up to the CST announcements Email list (see footer information below all the pages on this site), then you’ll be among the first to know when there that paper is out!
