Sometimes people experience a very distressing event, such as finding themselves in a lifethreatening situation due to: • a natural disaster, serious accident or fire; • being threatened or attacked; • assaulted or physically and sexually abused; • witnessing someone being attacked or seriously wounded; • or hearing that something horrific has happened to someone dear to you.
It is possible that you will not be able to process this traumatic event because it is too overwhelming and you will develop PTSD. The PTSD Selftest will help you make an initial assessment as to whether PTSD is applicable in your case. This questionnaire is concerned with your personal reactions to the traumatic event which happened to you.
Please check the boxes if you have experienced any of the following at least twice in the past week.
