Subject:RE: Trauma screen for infants and toddlers

Jessica, the state Department of Human Services has been working on this issue for some time. You may want to contact Rebecca Wilcox Rebecca.wilcox@state.mn.us . If she is not doing the direct work herself she will know who is. Rich Gehrman From: bounce-120918728-44670726@list.cornell.edu [mailto:bounce-120918728-44670726@list.cornell.edu] On Behalf Of Jessica Bartlett Sent: Friday, October 21, 2016 7:21 AM To: Child Maltreatment Researchers Subject: Trauma screen for infants and toddlers Hi All, The NCTSN Evaluation Community of Practice is interested in identifying a good trauma screener for very young children (birth to five), and I thought that this group might have some wisdom on the subject. We are aware that the Young Child PTSD Symptom Checklist is applicable (and free) but has some flaws and has not yet been shown to have good psychometric properties (to our knowledge). The Trauma Symptom Checklist for Young Children appears is reliable and valid, but can't be used for children under the age of three. Unfortunately, measures that require observation and coding of parent-infant interactions are not feasible for most NCTSN projects. We would be very grateful for your thoughts and ideas!
