Abstract and Keywords

Research has suggested that measures of positive subjective well-being add incremental validity in relation to traditional measures of psychopathological symptoms in predicting child and adolescent psychsocial adaptation. Measures of subjective well-being, including measures of life satisfaction and positive affect, have been constructed that are appropriate for children and/or adolescents. Several measures are reviewed and recommendations for future research are provided. A case study is employed to illustrate the usefulness of subjective well-being instruments in school-based psychological assessments.

Keywords: subjective well-being, life satisfaction, positive affect, assessment, children
