The Trauma Symptom Inventory-2 (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.
Three scales (Insecure Attachment, Somatic Preoccupations, and Suicidality) and several subscales, as well as four summary factors (Self-Disturbance, Posttraumatic Stress, Externalization, and Somatization), are new or have been significantly reconfigured.
New items assess clients’ tendencies to deny symptoms that are commonly endorsed, to over endorse unusual or bizarre symptoms, or to respond in an inconsistent or random manner; the instrument now addresses malingering.
An all-new standardization sample comprised 678 individuals whose demographics closely matched those of the U.S. Census.
The TSI-2 can be administered and scored online via PARiConnect. All PARiConnect purchases made directly through ACER include dedicated local support. Contact our Customer Service Team to set up your account today.
