Reported PTSD Assessment Practices of PTSD-focused and Forensic-focused Clinicians: Diagnosis and Overreporting

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

We surveyed “PTSD-focused” and “forensic-focused” psychologists to inquire about their “usual practice” of and attitudes toward a number of elements of PTSD assessment, specifically including overreporting of symptoms. Analyses indicated differences in approaches to overreporting, despite similar estimates of overreporting and potential for secondary gain. Empirical support for PTSD measures was desired by respondents, but the empirical support of many current PTSD instruments was unknown to them. Implications for these preliminary findings and their impact on forensic practice include a) the potential need for an integrated assessment of PTSD and dissimulation, and b) the legal admissibility of PTSD-focused clinicians’ assessments.
