Psychol Rep. 2000 Dec;87(3 Pt 1):735-7. doi: 10.2466/pr0.2000.87.3.735.

Abstract

The Self-rating Inventory for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder is a 22-item self-report questionnaire to give a diagnosis for PTSD based on DSM-IV criteria. Originally, the questionnaire was standardized with trauma survivors and psychiatric patients. Here test-retest reliabilities with 90 medial students are reported for 15 (.79) and 19 days (.97). As expected, the stability was slightly less for 34 days (.60).
