Abstract

The psychometric properties of the Trauma Symptom Checklist for Children (TSCC) were examined in 124 children and adolescents aged 8-16 years. Principal Component Analysis was performed to investigate the principal components of the TSCC, and Confirmatory Factor Analysis was conducted to test the dimensional structure of the TSCC.

RESULTS confirmed a six-factor structure, which fitted well with the data. Cronbach's alpha coefficients for the scales of TSCC yielded evidence for good internal reliability, with values ranging from 0.64 to 0.85. Strong evidence of convergent validity was observed through correlations with the Child Depression Inventory and Child Behavior Checklist. The preliminary results suggest that the TSCC is reliable and showed adequate evidence of validity.
