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.
The validation sample consisted of five nonoverlapping clinical groups: combat veterans, individuals with borderline personality disorder, sexual abuse victims, victims of domestic violence, and incarcerated women. A sample of subjects simulating PTSD was used to test malingering.
TSI-2 Reusable Item Booklets and Hand-Scorable Answer Sheets have been translated into U.S. Spanish. This product uses English norms only.
The TSI-2-SP scores and profiles TSI-2 and TSI-2-A results. It generates a score report and graphic profile of the client’s results, indicating the relative extent to which the respondent is experiencing posttraumatic stress or other sequelae of traumatic events. A change score report assists clinicians in determining whether significant change over time has occurred.
