The Trauma Symptom Checklist for Young Children (TSCYC) evaluates acute and chronic posttraumatic symptomatology and other psychological sequelae of traumatic events in children ages 3-12 years.
Based on the Trauma Symptom Checklist For Children (TSCC), the TSCYC is a 90-item caretaker-report measure that can be administered in less than 20 minutes. Caretakers rate each of 90 symptoms on a four-point scale according to how frequently the symptom occurred in the previous month.
The TSCYC Answer Sheet is used by the caretaker to record their responses.
The Answer Sheet is then hand scored, using the appropriate age-specific Profile Form.
