Brief Trauma Questionnaire

35,893 Shared Subjects

The BTQ is a brief self-report questionnaire that is derived from the Brief Trauma Interview (Schnurr et al., 1995). The BTQ was originally designed to assess traumatic exposure according to DSM‐IV but specifically asked only about Criterion A.1 (life threat/serious injury) because of the difficulty of accurately assessing A.2 (subjective response) in a brief self-report format. Criterion A.2 has been eliminated from the PTSD diagnostic criteria in DSM- 5, so the BTQ provides a complete assessment of Criterion A. https://www.ptsd.va.gov/professional/assessment/documents/BTQ.pdf
