A broadband measure, the TSI-2 is designed to evaluate posttraumatic stress and other psychological sequelae of traumatic events, including the effects of sexual and physical assault, intimate partner violence, combat, torture, motor vehicle accidents, mass casualty events, medical trauma, traumatic losses, and childhood abuse or neglect.

Features and benefits

  • New scales, subscales, and factors. Three scales (Insecure Attachment, Somatic Preoccupations, and Suicidality) and several subscales, as well as four summary factors (Self-Disturbance, Posttraumatic Stress, Externalization, and Somatization), are new or have been significantly reconfigured.
  • Improved validity scales. New items assess clients’ tendencies to deny symptoms that are commonly endorsed, to overendorse unusual or bizarre symptoms, or to respond in an inconsistent or random manner; the instrument now addresses malingering.
  • New norms. An all-new standardization sample comprised 678 individuals whose demographics closely matched those of the U.S. Census.

Test structure

  • A 136-item carbonless form assesses a wide range of potentially complex symptomatology, ranging from PTSD, dissociation, and somatization to insecure attachment styles, impaired self-capacities, and dysfunctional behaviors.
  • Eight critical items help identify issues that potentially represent severe psychological disturbance or danger to the respondent or others.
  • The TSI-2-A is a 126-item alternate version that does not contain any sexual symptom items.
  • Spanish-language forms are now available!

Technical information

The validation sample consisted of five nonoverlapping clinical groups: combat veterans, individuals with borderline personality disorder, sexual abuse victims, victims of domestic violence, and incarcerated women. A sample of subjects simulating PTSD was used to test malingering.

Scoring program available

The TSI-2-SP scores and profiles TSI-2 and TSI-2-A results. It generates a score report and graphic profile of the client’s results, indicating the relative extent to which the respondent is experiencing posttraumatic stress or other sequelae of traumatic events. A change score report assists clinicians in determining whether significant change over time has occurred.
