So . . . is your score 4 or greater?
If you have been exhibiting 4 or more of these symptoms, you may want to find someone to talk to about the possibility of that you are experiencing a significant stress reaction to a trauma.
If you or someone you know has frequent thoughts of death or suicide, seek professional help immediately.
If you need to speak to someone after regular business hours you may reach an after-hours counselor by contacting the University Police 775-2111.
Remember, a high score on this questionnaire does not necessarily mean you have a posttraumatic stress disorder--only an evaluation by an experienced clinician can make this determination.
