Although the DRRI-2 was developed for research purposes, it may also be useful for descriptive purposes and to motivate discussion between the client and therapist.
The information gathered with the DRRI-2 may assist the clinician in understanding the client's range of deployment experiences and the impact on his or her current mental and physical health.
The DRRI-2 has not been validated as a clinical instrument and, thus, is not presently intended for clinically diagnosing individuals. No clinical cut-off scores exist for classifying clients into diagnostic groups, and clinical norms have not been established.
Using the PILOTS database for Assessment Information
The PILOTS database is the largest electronic index to the world's literature on traumatic stress.
The National Center for PTSD does not provide direct clinical care, individual referrals or benefits information.
