The Trauma Symptom Checklist for Young Children - Screening Form (TSCYC-SF) allows you to quickly screen for posttraumatic stress and related psychological symptomatology in children ages 3-12 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.
- Carbonless form takes just 5 minutes to administer and score.
- Quickly indicates whether a child is at risk for clinically significant psychological disturbance.
- Does not require an advanced degree or training to administer and score.
- Can be administered individually or in a group setting.

The TSCYC-SF was derived from the Trauma Symptom Checklist for Young Children (TSCYC). 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 TSCYC-SF features separate cutoff scores (derived from TSCYC normative data) for boys and girls ages 3-4 years, ages 5-9 years, and ages 10-12 years.
