Specific Instructions:

The University of California, Los Angeles, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder Reaction Index (UCLA PTSD Index) for the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (5th ed.; DSM-5) is a proprietary instrument, and administration requires a license from UCLA IP Marketplace.

This measure includes both the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (4th ed.; DSM-IV) and DSM-5 versions of the UCLA PTSD Index. The PhenX External Review Panel anticipates that scientific demands will dictate that researchers typically collect data in accordance with the most recent PTSD criteria and will use the DSM-5 version of the protocol. However, under special circumstances (e.g., when adding to older, existing data sets), researchers may decide to use the DSM-IV version instead.

Selection Rationale

The University of California, Los Angeles, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder Reaction Index (UCLA PTSD Index) for the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (5th ed.; DSM-5) is based on the UCLA PTSD Index for the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (4th ed; DSM-IV), a brief, self-administered, widely used measure to assess PTSD symptoms that demonstrates good psychometric properties. The UCLA PTSD Index for DSM-5 provides a quantitative measure of PTSD symptom severity that aligns with the revised diagnostic criteria.
