Used with children and adolescents, the UCLA PTSD index for DSM IV is a series of self and parent report instruments to screen both for exposure to traumatic events and for all DSM IV PTSD symptoms in school age children and adolescents who report traumatic stress experiences. The instrument measures traumatic bereavement. It includes twenty items that comprise three independent factors of the measure—positive reminiscing, intrusion of PTSD on grieving process, and existential loss. The instrument is meant to serve as a brief screening tool to provide information regarding trauma exposure and PTSD symptoms.
