Trauma and Distress Scale (TADS)

The Trauma and Distress Scale (TADS, Patterson P, Skeate A, Schultze-Lutter F, Graf von Reventlow H, Wieneke A, Ruhrmann S, Salokangas RKR; Birmingham: University of Birmingham, 2002) is a self-rating scale especially developed for recollecting and self-rating of predominantly childhood and early adulthood traumatic experiences and distress possibly contributing to the development of psychotic disorders.

The TADS has been developed on the basis of a review of the respective literature. Thus, the TADS allows for the assessment of early traumatic experiences and distress in psychiatric samples. Potential end-users are psychiatric, psychological or public health investigators engaged in psychiatric research.

As the main benefit, the Trauma and Distress Scale provides a condensed scale reflecting the current state in early trauma research, considering especially the clients' requirements in early recognition research.
