CORE System Trust (CST)

Page last updated 16/8/19 clarifying licencing, author CST/CE, licence: Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) .

CORE stands for “Clinical Outcomes in Routine Evaluation” and the CORE system comprises tools and thinking to support monitoring of change and outcomes in routine practice in psychotherapy, counselling and any other work attempting to promote psychological recovery, health and wellbeing. CORE System Trust owns the copyright on all the instruments in the system. More information about CST here.

CORE and CST on the web

A CST site was started in 2015 to mark the fact that we had put all the instruments into a Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0) licence. That was the logical development of the fact that we have never charged for reproduction of the instruments on paper and extended that to implementation in software. This current site, live since 14/8/19 is a development of the 2015 site but clarifying authorship of the various components and the person power of CST. This page has the key legalities and a hierarchical menu of pages should be visible to you, on the left if you have a large screen, or as a pull down menu if you’re on a small screen. With that and the search function (in the menu), I hope you can find what you want on the site. If not, do tell me.

Copyright of the instruments and the site contents

Instruments: all the instruments and perhaps some other content here is copyright to CST not myself. As it’s vital for comparability of findings for instruments, and for proper referencing and citing of some informative materials and publications, they are made available under a licence, the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0) licence. That allows you to use them, without any licence payments as long as their content is not changed in any way including retaining the copyright line on each instrument. Before reproducing any instrument in any way, please check detail on the licensing of the instruments.

Most of this site: most other content here is copyright to me (CE) but is made available under a more relaxed licence, the Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) as, in contrast with the instruments, it’s not so vital that content is unchanged. This allows you to reuse parts provided that you use the same licence and make some clear attribution back here within the usage. If it’s not clear what licence covers what, you must use the “Contact” form to get me to clarify things.

Personal data, data protection and GDPR

In line with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), I have created a CST privacy policy statement that details GDPR/privacy issues relating to CST and to this web site and a short cookie information page covers those specifically.  Those pages will be updated if anything in either changes in the future.
