Below is an alphabetical list of trauma exposure measures. These assessment instruments measure the types of trauma a person has been exposed to, or the degree of severity of the traumatic event someone experienced. For each measure, a brief description, sample items, versions, and references are provided. Information on how to obtain the measure is also provided. The chart provides a comparison of the trauma exposure measures.
Measure availability: Information on measures is available to everyone. However, the assessment tools themselves can only be distributed to qualified mental health professionals and researchers. We maintain measures developed by affiliated staff of the National Center for PTSD.
