Objective:To enhance the clinical utility of the Perinatal Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Questionnaire (PPQ), the current study sought to refine the measure by changing the item response options from dichotomous choices to a likert scale format. [] Key MethodStudy Design:Using a convergent/divergent validity design and two data sources (traditional survey and World Wide Web), 58 high-risk and 86 low-risk mothers answered four questionnaires.

Validation of perinatal post-traumatic stress disorder questionnaire for Spanish women during the postpartum period.
TLDR
The PPQ used when screening for PTSD in postpartum Spanish women showed adequate psychometric properties and was associated with the risk of PTSD with variables including birth plan, type of birth, hospital length of stay, hospital readmission, admission of the newborn to care unit, skin-to-skin contact, maternal feeding at discharge and respect shown by healthcare professionals during childbirth and puerperium.

TLDR
Correlations among the convergent measures were significantly greater than the correlation between the PPQ and NCS, and high-risk mothers also scored higher than normal mothers on thePPQ and IES.

TLDR
The results suggest that peritraumatic psychological processes, not prior characteristics, are the strongest predictors of PTSD.

TLDR
Perceptions of low levels of support from partner and staff, patterns of blame and low perceived control in labour were found to be particularly related to experience of post-traumatic stress symptoms.
Clinical Utility of the Impact of Event Scale: Psychometrics in the General Population
TLDR
The current data suggest that an "upsetting event" version of the IES may be useful as a brief screen for nonarousal related posttraumatic stress, but that its potential limitations should be taken into account.

TLDR
A system that considers people who meet all three symptom criteria to have a psychiatric disorder yet recognizes the distress of other symptomatic survivors may best serve traumatized populations.
A measurement model of perinatal stressors: identifying risk for postnatal emotional distress in mothers of high-risk infants.
TLDR
A modified measurement model indicated that Infant Maturity and Complications were significant predictors of postnatal emotional distress in an additional sample of mothers and may also be useful in predicting other measures of psychological distress in parents and measures of cognitive and motor development in infants.
