Usefulness of a DSM Criteria-Based Inventory for Screening for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 28 June 2012
The aim of the study is to evaluate the self-administered Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th Edition criteria-based inventory for the screening of post-traumatic stress disorder. Due to its low sensitivity (57%) and high specificity (88%), it could be useful as a second step of a screening procedure in combination with other validated, self-report instruments. The clinical implications of the findings and the limitations of the study are discussed.
