Purpose: Evaluate acute and chronic posttraumatic symptomatology

Age: 18-88 years

Time: 20 minutes

Administration: Individual or group

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.

Test Structure

  • A 136-item carbonless form assesses a wide range of potentially complex symptomatology, ranging from PTSD, dissociation, and somatization to insecure attachment styles, impaired self-capacities, and dysfunctional behaviours.
  • Eight critical items help identify issues that potentially represent severe psychological disturbance or danger to the respondent or others.
  • The TSI-2-A is a 126-item alternate version that does not contain any sexual symptom items.

Key Features

  • New scales, subscales, and factors

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.

  • Improved validity scales

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.

  • New norms

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.
