Common purposes for psychological testing include: screening for the presence or absence of common mental health conditions; making a formal diagnosis of a mental health condition; assessment of changes in symptom severity; and monitoring client outcomes across the course of therapy. Screening measures are often questionnaires completed by clients.
Screening tends are quick to administer but results are only indicative: if a positive result is found on a screening test then the screening test can be followed up by a more definitive test.
Mental health assessment with the purpose of supporting a diagnosis can include the use of semi-structured diagnostic interviews and validated questionnaires. Items in self-report measures used for diagnosis often bear a close correspondence to criteria specified in the diagnostic manuals ICD and DSM. Psychologists, CBT therapists, and other mental health professionals often ask their clients to complete self-report measures regularly to assess changes in symptom severity. Tolin, D.

Development of a Scale to Assess Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
Yoga may be effective in the reduction of PTSD symptomology. To supplement the current field of inquiry, a pilot randomized control trial RCT was conducted comparing an 8-session KY intervention with a waitlist control group. Both groups demonstrated changes in PTSD symptomology but yoga participants showed greater changes in measures of sleep, positive affect, perceived stress, anxiety, stress, and resilience. Between-groups effect sizes were small to moderate 0. Findings indicate the need for further yoga research to better understand the mechanism of yoga in relation to mental and physical health, gender and ethnic comparisons, and short- and long-term yoga practice for psychiatric conditions.

Online Assessment Measures
The scale assesses the trauma experienced by people via the specific criteria of reexperiencing, numbing and avoidance, hyperarousal, and functioning. The instrument was validated on 52 Vietnam veteran subjects diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder PTSD , 64 subjects who were attending professional counseling for trauma-related incidents, and subjects who had never been diagnosed with PTSD or had professional counseling. The test-retest reliability of the scale was assessed over a four- to six-week period.
This article, based on a comprehensive review by Weathers and associates, provides a selective and brief summary of trauma and PTSD assessments in adults. Posttraumatic stress disorder PTSD is a chronic and debilitating mental condition that develops in response to catastrophic life events, such as military combat, sexual assault, and natural disasters. The symptoms of PTSD are divided into 3 symptom clusters: reexperiencing, avoidance, and hyperarousal. In addition, trauma survivors often experience guilt, dissociation, alterations in personality, difficulty with affect regulation, and marked impairment in ability for intimacy and attachment. Over the past several decades, considerable progress has been made in the development and empirical evaluation of assessment instruments for measuring trauma exposure and PTSD as well as related syndromes, such as acute stress disorder.
Post-traumatic stress disorder PTSD [note 1] is a mental disorder that can develop after a person is exposed to a traumatic event, such as sexual assault , warfare , traffic collisions , child abuse , or other threats on a person's life. Most people who experience traumatic events do not develop PTSD. Prevention may be possible when counselling is targeted at those with early symptoms but is not effective when provided to all trauma-exposed individuals whether or not symptoms are present.

Although an optimal evaluation of a patient for PTSD consists of a face-to-face interview by a mental health professional trained in diagnosing psychiatric disorders, several instruments are available to facilitate the diagnosis and assessment of posttraumatic stress disorder PTSD. These include screening tools, diagnostic instruments, and trauma and symptom severity scales. These instruments are discussed below. Such measures are used most frequently in research settings, some might be used clinically to provide additional sources of documentation, and others might be given to veterans at a health facility prior to their first interview with health professional. Screening tools can be useful in initiating a conversation about exposure to traumatic events or possible PTSD symptoms.
