INTERNATIONAL TRAUMA EXPOSURE MEASURE

The International Trauma Exposure Measure (ITEM) is a new checklist developed to capture traumatic life events, and their associated features, in a manner consistent with the ICD-11’s descriptions of different trauma-related disorders. 

The ITEM measures exposure to different traumatic life events across different developmental periods (childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and lifetime); frequency of exposure to one's most distressing traumatic event; and the main emotion associated with one's most distressing traumatic event. The ITEM is freely available to the research and clinical communities and may be used without permission.
