No points for Never, one point for “Sometimes”, two points for “Often”, and three points for “Very often”. The maximum possible score is 36.

As of April 2021, there has been a study, so norms are not known.

This test was created because I could not find a general assessment for catastrophization. Rather I found studies of pain catastrophization, which can be too specific.

This form can be the nucleus for planning psychotherapy for catastrophization. I suggest focusing on answers that were either “Often” or “Very often.”
