A table of available self-report inventories used throughout the world is provided with references for obtaining necessary psychometric data for research or clinical applications. Considerations for choosing an inventory (reliability, validity, and content appropriateness) are discussed and issues related to group versus single-subject applications examined. It is preferable that translation and revalidation of existing outcome measures be considered above developing new ones for international application.
