Do I have PTSD?
This screening tool is designed as a guide to determine if you are having an adverse response to a traumatic event.
A high score on this checklist does not necessarily mean you have PTSD. These questions were developed by Laura van Dernoot Lipsky (2009) ‘Trauma Stewardship’ and may help you to identify different areas you are struggling with.
If you answered YES to any of the above questions, and if your experiences are interfering with your work or home life, you may be suffering from PTSD. However, a licensed psychologist can make a more accurate diagnosis. Talking to a mental health professional and learning new coping strategies can help you to manage your symptoms when triggers or new stressors arise. Consider getting in touch with us for a more complete and thorough evaluation.
