PTSD INVENTORY - CLINICAL VERSION (PTSD-C): THE DEVELOPMENT OF A QUESTIONNAIRE AIME DAT ASSESSING POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS UISORDER


Abstract. The aim of the study is to present the development and psychometric proper-
ties of the clinical version of the PTSD Inventory (PTSD-C). The inventory serves for
assessing post-traumatic stress disorder defined by symptoms according to the DSM-IV
manual. Data on which statistical analyses were performed refer to two samples of flood
victims (N = 396 and N = 281) aged from 13 to 85 years and a group of coal miners
(aged from 23 to 54 years) who experienced a mining accident. The PTSD-C is based
on a two parameter model of the Item Response Theory (TRT) - item's difficulty and
discriminative power. Items selected for this version refer to all criteria of PTSD symp-
toms and to five levels of item's difficulty. PTSD-C contains 40 items. Validity of the
inventory is based on objective measures of trauma that allow for assessing PTSD on
the basis of two cut-off scores.
