Trauma / PTSD Informal Assessment

This confidential test is an informal tool designed for individuals who have experienced a traumatizing event. It can help you measure your trauma history and the resulting symptoms you may experience. Not treating the emotional disturbances that can occur as a result of traumatic experiences, can have the long-term, negative physical, emotional, and mental effects.  Regardless of the outcome of this test, if you have experienced a traumatizing event, and are struggling, please do not hesitate to contact The Transformation Center and Associates for a free clinical assessment.  With the right treatment, there truly is no trauma that cannot be healed!  

Some common causes of PTSD are: 

  • Childhood emotional, physical, and or Sexual abuse
  • Violent crimes such as assault or rape
  • Sudden, unexpected death of a loved one
  • Loss of important relationships
  • Loss of home and belongings
  • Witnessing traumatic events
  • Marital or relationship abuse
  • Tragic accidents
  • Stalking or harassment

(This test is not designed to make a diagnosis of PTSD or to take the place of a professional diagnosis or consultation. It alone does not yield a specific diagnosis of PTSD. Neither this, nor any other screening instrument, has been established as highly efficient as the sole means for identifying PTSD. )
