The Trauma and Attachment Belief Scale (TABS) is an 84-item self-report measure that assesses long-term impact of trauma, helping clinicians design effective individualised treatment plans.
The TABS assesses beliefs-about self and others-that are related to five needs commonly affected by traumatic experience (safety, trust, esteem, intimacy, control). For each of these dimensions, the TABS produces 10 scale scores reflecting "beliefs about self" and "beliefs about others." A Total Score is also provided.
The TABS Manual is split into two parts, providing information on:
Part I: Administration, Scoring and Interpretation Guide
