Abstract

Assessment variables are multidimensional and likely combine synergistically to influence outcomes. Failure to assess the wide range of variables proven important to posttrauma outcomes or to use appropriate variable groupings may hinder the accuracy of findings. A number of variables, such as the number and types of traumatic exposures in a lifetime or in an event, the presence of strong negative emotions (e.g., shame, guilt, or anger), children's genetic and personality traits, and measures of reactivity (e.g., cortisol levels), are important to our understanding and assessment of children's posttrauma reactions over time. Some variables previously assessed primarily in relationship to complex traumatic reactions are relevant to children's ongoing development regardless of the complexity of exposure or reactions.
