Trauma Questionnaire

This is a screen that is meant to get you thinking about your trauma history.  Because it is a self-report measure, and is not exhaustive in its content, do not assume if you have a low score that you would not be a good candidate for the Richmont Trauma Center.  It is part of beginning a conversation in your life about trauma, but not meant to be the end of the conversation if your score is lower than you might expect.
