The TSC-40 is a 40-item self-report measure of symptomatic distress in adults arising from childhood or adult traumatic experiences. It measures aspects of posttraumatic stress as well as other symptoms found in some traumatized individuals.

Measure availability: We provide information on a variety of measures assessing trauma and PTSD. These measures are intended for use by qualified mental health professionals and researchers. Measures authored by National Center staff are available as direct downloads or by request. Measures developed outside of the National Center can be requested via contact information available on the information page for the specific measure.

The TSI-2 is a 136-item adult self-report measure of posttraumatic stress and other psychological sequelae of traumatic and stressful events. It was updated in 2011 from the original 100-item TSI and designed to assess sequelae of a wide range of adversities, including DSM-5 trauma but also stressful experiences such as emotional neglect and experiences of loss. The TSI-2 assesses PTSD symptoms but also broader psychological outcomes. Symptom responses are not tied to a particular event or timespan. Respondents are asked to rate how often each symptom has happened to them in the past 6 months. Items are rated on a 4-point frequency scale ranging from 0 ("never") to 3 ("often").

Therefore, scales map onto some DSM-5 PTSD symptoms (e.g., avoidance, intrusions) but the TSI-2 is not designed to map solely or directly onto DSM-5 PTSD. The TSI-2 also includes 2 validity scales (response level and atypical response) along with 8 critical items to help identify potential severe disturbance or danger (e.g., suicidal ideation). The TSI-2 includes a reliable change score for repeated measurement as well. A computer scoring program is available from the test publisher, with norms based on gender and age. The TSI-2 is recommended for measuring a variety of trauma-related symptoms in clinical or research settings.

Purpose: Evaluate acute and chronic posttraumatic symptomatologyAge Range: 18 through to 88 yearsAdmin: Individual or GroupTime: 20 Minutes

The TSI-2 is designed to evaluate posttraumatic stress and other psychological sequelae of traumatic events. This broadband measure evaluates acute and chronic symptomatology, including the effects of sexual and physical assault, intimate partner violence, combat, torture, motor vehicle accidents, mass casualty events, medical trauma, traumatic losses, and childhood abuse or neglect.

The TSI-2 consists of 136 items and assesses a wide range of potentially complex symptomatology, ranging from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), dissociation, and somatisation to insecure attachment styles, impaired self-capacities, and dysfunctional behaviours.

WHAT IT MEASURES: The TSC-40 is a research measure that evaluates symptomatology in adults associated with childhood or adult traumatic experiences. It measures aspects of posttraumatic stress and other symptom clusters found in some traumatized individuals. It does not measure all 17 criteria of PTSD, and should not be used as a complete measure of that construct. The TSC-40 is a revision of the earlier TSC-33 (Briere & Runtz, 1989). Those requiring a validated psychological test of posttraumatic response, using a similar format, should consider the Trauma Symptom Inventory (TSI) or (for evaluation of a specific trauma) the Detailed Assessment of Posttraumatic Stress (DAPS).
