The Trauma Symptom Checklist for Children - Screening Form (TSCC-SF) allows you to quickly screen for posttraumatic stress and related psychological symptomatology in children ages 8-17 years 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 TSCC-SF was derived from the Trauma Symptom Checklist for Children (TSCC). Selected items were best at predicting overall trauma and sexual-related symptomology. It includes 12 items and two subscales—General Trauma and Sexual Concerns—that are scored separately. The TSCC-SF features separate cutoff scores (derived from TSCC normative data) for boys and girls ages 8-12 years and ages 13-17 years.
