The Trauma Symptom Checklist For Children (TSCC) evaluates acute and chronic posttraumatic symptomatology in children from 8-16 years of age, 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 54-item TSCC includes two validity scales (Underresponse and Hyperresponse), six clinical scales (Anxiety, Depression, Anger, Posttraumatic Stress, Dissociation, and Sexual Concerns) and eight critical items.
The alternate 44-item version (TSCC-A) is identical to the TSCC, except it makes no reference to sexual issues (and has no Sexual Concerns scale) and includes seven Critical Items.
The TSCC Test Booklet provides the child with instructions on how to complete the Booklet. The next two pages include the 54 items.
Children mark the responses directly onto the Test Booklet, with responses automatically transferred to the scoring page underneath.
