You may know the Trauma Symptom Checklist for Children (TSCC) evaluates posttraumatic stress symptomatology in individuals 8 to 16 years old. Here are five things you may not know:
- The TSCC is comprehensive: The TSCC measures posttraumatic stress and related psychological symptomology in children and adolescents who have experienced traumatic events such as physical or sexual abuse, major loss, and natural disasters.
- The TSCC is customizable: The test features separate self-report profile forms for males and females, with items for ages 8-12 years on one side and items for ages 13-16 years on the other side. An alternate form, the TSCC-A, makes no reference to sexual issues.
- The TSCC is reliable and valid: It meets the new 2017 standards for use in Children’s Advocacy Centers.
- The TSCC has free online training. Get up to speed quickly with a short instructional video describing the administration, scoring, and interpretation of the TSCC—available at no charge on the PAR Training Portal.
- The TSCC is convenient. Administer and score with paper and pencil or 24/7 via PARiConnect, our online assessment platform.
