About This Product

Picture of (TSCC) Trauma Symptom Checklist for Children


This brief inventory is an excellent way to evaluate children and teens who have experienced traumatic events, such as physical or sexual abuse, major loss, natural disaster, or violence. Composed of 54 items, the TSCC includes two validity scales and six clinical scales:

• Anxiety

• Depression

• Anger

• Posttraumatic Stress

• Dissociation

• Sexual Concerns

An alternate version, the TSCC-A, can be used when no sexual issues are involved. It drops the Sexual Concerns Scale, and its 44 items make no references to sexual activity.
