The Trauma Symptom Checklist For Children (TSCC) evaluates acute and chronic posttraumatic symptomatology in children from 8-16 years of age, who have experienced traumatic events (such as physical or sexual abuse, major loss, or natural disasters, or who have been a witness to violence).
The 54-item TSCC includes two validity scales (Underresponse and Hyperresponse), six clinical scales (Anxiety, Depression, Anger, Posttraumatic Stress, Dissociation, and Sexual Concerns) and eight critical items.
The alternate 44-item version (TSCC-A) is identical to the TSCC, except it makes no reference to sexual issues (and has no Sexual Concerns scale) and includes seven Critical Items.
The TSCC-A Test Booklet provides the child with instructions on how to complete the Booklet. The next two pages include the 44 TSCC-A items.
Children mark the responses directly onto the Test Booklet, with responses automatically transferred to the scoring page underneath.
