A Self-Report that Evaluates Acute and Chronic Posttraumatic Symptoms in Adults


A broadband measure, the TSI-2 is designed to evaluate posttraumatic stress and other psychological sequelae of traumatic events, including the effects of sexual and physical assault, intimate partner violence, combat, torture, motor vehicle accidents, mass casualty events, medical trauma, traumatic losses, and childhood abuse or neglect.

Features and benefits

  • Three scales (Insecure Attachment, Somatic Preoccupations, and Suicidality) and several subscales, as well as four summary factors (Self-Disturbance, Posttraumatic Stress, Externalization, and Somatization), are new or have been significantly reconfigured.
  • Items assess clients’ tendencies to deny symptoms that are commonly endorsed, to overendorse unusual or bizarre symptoms, or to respond in a random manner; the instrument now addresses malingering.
  • Standardization sample (N = 678) closely matches U.S. Census statistics.
  • Alternately, administer the TSI-2 Alternate Form (TSI-2-A) which does not contain any sexual symptom items.
  • Online administration and scoring is available on PARiConnect.


Available in Spanish
