The present study examined whether repeated exposure to daily surveys about negative social experiences predicts changes in adolescents’ daily and general maladjustment, and whether question content moderates these changes. Across a 2-week period, 6th-grade students (= 215; mode age = 11) completed 5 daily reports tapping experienced or experienced and witnessed negative events, or they completed no daily reports. General maladjustment was measured in 2-week intervals before, at the end of, and 2 weeks after the daily report study. Daily maladjustment either decreased or did not change across the 5 daily report exposures. General maladjustment decreased across the three 2-week intervals. Combined, results indicate that short-term daily report studies do not place youth at risk for increased maladjustment.
