The Detailed Assessment of Posttraumatic Stress (DAPS) assesses traumatic exposure and symptoms of posttraumatic stress in adults 18-91 years of age. The DAPS assists in the diagnosis of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or acute stress disorder (ASD) based on an individual's self-reported trauma exposure and posttraumatic symptoms.
The DAPS Hand-Scorable Answer Sheet is completed by the respondent. They read the items from the Reusable Item Booklet, then mark their responses on the Hand-Scorable Answer Sheet.
The DAPS items are presented in three parts, and the Answer Sheet is completed accordingly.
The Hand-Scorable Answer Sheet is either scored by hand by the examiner (in conjunction with the Profile Form), or online via PARiConnect score or interpretive reports.
