PDS (Posttraumatic Stress Diagnostic Scale) - Frequently Asked Questions

When I am in on-line entry, item 13 does not come up for editing.

Item 13 will not come up for editing unless the response to Item 12 is Yes.

I administered the PDS assessment and although the individual did experience a traumatic event, (s)he omitted 8 items. Will I still get a meaningful report?

It is very possible that you will still get a good deal of useful information. The information regarding a PTSD diagnosis will be accurate; however, the symptom severity information may be understated. If more than 12 items are omitted in Parts 2 through 4, it is likely that the results will not be meaningful.
