Reports on the development and preliminary validation of the Child PTSD Symptom Scale (CPSS) for children and adolescents. The CPSS is a new instrument that was developed to assess the severity of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (4th ed.; American Psychiatric Association, 1994) posttraumatic stress disorder symptoms in children exposed to trauma. The CPSS was administered to 75 school-age children approximately 2 years after the 1994 Northridge, California, earthquake. The… Expand

TLDR
The three versions of the CPSS-5 scales are valid and reliable measures of DSM-5 PTSD symptomatology in traumatized youth, showing good internal consistency and test–retest reliability. Expand
The Child PTSD Symptom Scale: An Investigation of Its Psychometric Properties
TLDR
The factor structure, reliability, and concurrent and discriminant validity of the CPSS were investigated in a sample of 206 6th- to 12th-grade adolescents, and exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis supported a single-factor structure, which was contrary to the hypothesized three-Factor structure. Expand
Diagnostic utility of CPSS vs. CAPS-CA for assessing posttraumatic stress symptoms in children and adolescents.
TLDR
Findings suggest that CPSS is a good tool for screening purposes, but not as a diagnostic instrument in an early phase of assessment, compared with the clinician-administered PTSD scale for children and adolescents. Expand
The Child PTSD Symptom Scale in Abused Children: Criteria for Diagnosis
By analyzing the psychometric properties of the Child PTSD Symptom Scale (CPSS) this study aims to provide data for improving the diagnostic criteria of PTSD in childhood and adolescence. The sampleExpand
Psychometric Evaluation of the Comprehensive Trauma Interview PTSD Symptoms Scale Following Exposure to Child Maltreatment
TLDR
The CTI-PSS demonstrated strong convergence with an established measure of PTSD symptoms and explained unique variance in the prediction of child sexual abuse status. Expand
Psychometric Evaluation of the Child PTSD Symptom Scale in Spanish and English
TLDR
The current study examines the psychometric properties of the Child PTSD Symptom Scale (CPSS) and demonstrated construct validity for the English CPSS, but not for the Spanish CPSS. Expand
The Child PTSD Symptom Scale: psychometric properties in female adolescent sexual assault survivors.
TLDR
The psychometric properties of the interview and self-report administrations of the Child PTSD Symptom Scale are examined in a sample of 91 female youths with sexual abuse-related PTSD, a population that is targeted in many treatment studies. Expand

TLDR
The YSR appeared to be a useful diagnostic aid for youth PTSD and could facilitate differential diagnosis of youth PTSD in outpatient settings, and combining tests did not improve prediction of PTSD. Expand
The Dutch version of the Child Posttraumatic Cognitions Inventory: validation in a clinical sample and a school sample
TLDR
The results suggest that the Dutch CPTCI is a reliable and valid instrument and shows good internal consistency for the total scale and the two subscales. Expand
Validation of the Child Posttraumatic Symptom Scale in a sample of treatment-seeking Israeli youth.
TLDR
The psychometric properties of the Hebrew version of the Child Posttraumatic Symptom Scale (CPSS), a self-report measure assessing the severity of posttraumatic distress in youth, support it as a valuable assessment tool for children exposed to traumatic events. Expand

The Validation of a Self-Report Measure of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
TLDR
The development and validation of a self-report measure of posttraumatic stress disorder, the Posttraumatic Diagnostic Scale (PTDS), that yields both a PTSD diagnosis according to Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (4th ed.) criteria and a measure of PTSD symptom severity is reported. Expand
Traumas and posttraumatic stress disorder in a community population of older adolescents.
TLDR
The substantial risk faced by youths in community settings for experiencing traumas and PTSD, along with associated impairments in later adolescence, underscores the need for programs of prompt intervention. Expand
The pediatric emotional distress scale: a brief screening measure for young children exposed to traumatic events.
TLDR
Discriminant analyses demonstrated the PEDS could distinguish traumatic event exposure and nonexposure groups, although maternal education should be a significant consideration in interpretation. Expand
Psychiatric comorbidity in children after the 1988 earthquake in Armenia.
TLDR
High rates of current PTSD, depressive disorder, and their co-occurrence were found among victims residing in the two heavily impacted cities, and an interactive model is proposed of postdisaster psychopathology. Expand
Posttraumatic stress disorder in an urban population of young adults: risk factors for chronicity.
TLDR
It is suggested that chronic PTSD may be associated with specific risk factors and clinical features and longitudinal data on the course of PTSD are needed to determine whether the distinct features and the medical and psychiatric histories of persons with chronic PTSD are complications attendant on a chronic course or coexisting disturbances that inhibit recovery. Expand
Life threat and posttraumatic stress in school-age children.
TLDR
The results provide strong evidence that acute PTSD symptoms occur in school-age children with a notable correlation between proximity to the violence and type and number of PTSD symptoms. Expand
Prospective study of posttraumatic stress disorder and depression following trauma.
TLDR
Major depression and PTSD are independent sequelae of traumatic events, have similar prognoses, and interact to increase distress and dysfunction and both should be targeted by early treatment interventions and by neurobiological research. Expand
Prevalence of PTSD in a community sample of older adolescents.
TLDR
While relatively few adolescents satisfy the criteria for PTSD, most subjects who experienced a traumatic event reported some PTSD symptoms and specific types of traumatic events were associated with occurrence of PTSD. Expand
Symptoms of posttraumatic stress in children after Hurricane Andrew: a prospective study.
TLDR
Although symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) declined over time, a substantial level of symptomatology was observed up to 10 months after the disease and all 5 factors in the conceptual model were predictive of children's PTSD symptoms 7 and 10 months postdisaster. Expand
Posttraumatic symptomatology in children and adolescents after an industrial fire.
TLDR
This study strengthens and extends findings from earlier literature on pediatric PTSD in showing that PTS and comorbid internalizing and externalizing symptoms rise in direct proportion to degree of exposure. Expand
