Depression Scales Derived from the Hopkins Symptom Checklist
The Hopkins Symptom Checklist (HSCL) is a patient self-report symptom inventory derived from the Cornell Medical Index. The HSCL was developed initially to measure the more common psychoneurotic complaints of outpatients . An early version of the instrument, the “Discomfort Scale,” was used by Parloff et al.  and by Frank et al.  as an improvement measure in their studies of psychotherapy. Frank et al. , for example, employed a 41-item version of the HSCL in a series of psychotherapy studies.
