The State-Trait Anxiety Inventory for Children (STAI-C) (Spielberger, Edwards, Lushene, Montuori, & Platzek, 1973) trait subscale is a widely used 20-item self-report measure designed for youths ages 6–14 and commonly used with youth and adolescents through age 18 (Muris, Merckelbach, Ollendick, King, & Bogie, 2002). Participants report the frequency with which they feel anxiety-related symptoms (e.g., I get a funny feeling in my stomach.). Total scores range from 20 – 60; higher values indicate greater anxiety. The STAI-C has demonstrated good internal consistency and test-retest reliability among non-treatment seeking children (Spielberger, 1972) and adolescents (Glasofer et al., 2007), and had good internal consistency in the current study (α= .88).
