Subjective Units of Distress Scale was designed in 1969 by Wolpe. It is frequently used in CBT treatments concerning distress and for research purposes.
We have re-designed this scale with just three anchor points on the thermometer, encouraging subjective self-rating.
The scale is designed to look non-medical, and to encourage engagement in arts and health settings through simple, sophisticated design and clear instructions which refrain from medical instructions and labelling.
