Background: 

The College Activities and Behaviors Questionnaire (CABQ) is a 22-item self-report measure that asks about the number of times students engaged in various activities during the previous week. Only seven items, which targeted sleep behaviors, interpersonal interactions, physical health, and journaling, were used . These items were chosen, as they seemed to be particularly important areas of functioning for depression-vulnerable individuals, and allowed for the examination of journaling behaviors following the writing intervention.
