The DAPS is a self-report instrument that assesses peri- and posttraumatic symptoms and associated features related to a specific traumatic event, in patients between the ages of 18 to 91. It provides a detailed assessment of PTSD in a short amount of time (between 20 to 30 minutes to administer). The test assesses both current and lifetime history of DSM-IV-TR? trauma exposure and the severity and clinical significance of the client?s posttraumatic symptoms, including dissociative, cognitive, and emotional responses. It includes three PTSD symptom clusters (Reexperiencing, Avoidance, and Hyperarousal) and three associated features of PTSD (Trauma-Specific Dissociation, Suicidality, and Substance Abuse). The DAPS Introductory Kit includes: DAPS Professional Manual, 10 Reusable Item Booklets, 50 Hand-Scorable Answer Sheets, and 50 Male/Female Profile Forms.
