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 Reusable Item Booklet contains the 90 TSCYC items. Instructions to the caretaker for completing the TSCYC are provided on the first page of the Item Booklet.
