Abstract: Early identification of subjects at risk for developing a Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is important. Brewin and colleagues (2002) developed an effective screening instrument for this purpose, the Trauma Screening Questionnaire [TSQ]. In this study, we validated the Dutch version of the TSQ in a sample of victims of different traumas. The results show that at cut-off score of 7 on the TSQ, most subject with PTSD were identified correctly. We found a moderate positive correlation between PTSD and the severity of complaints. We also found a significant relation between the TSQ and depression symptoms, but not between the TSQ and other anxiety disorders. This study indicates that the Dutch version of the TSQ can be a useful instrument identifying future cases of PTSD
