The Civilian Mississippi Scale for combat-related PTSD (Urdu)


The M-PTSD is a 35-item self-report measure that assesses combat-related PTSD in Veteran populations. Items sample DSM-III symptoms of PTSD and frequently observed associated features (substance abuse, suicidality, and depression).


Respondents are asked to rate how they feel about each item using 5-point, Likert-style response categories. Ten positively framed items are reversed scored and then responses are summed to provide an index of PTSD symptom severity which can range from 35-175. Cutoff scores for a probable PTSD diagnosis have been validated for some populations, but may not generalize to other populations.


A civilian version was developed in conjunction with the original M-PTSD to assess PTSD resulting from other (non-military) types of traumatic experiences. Eleven questions in the M-PTSD Civilian version were reworded to remove the military reference. Scoring is the same. To account for changes in DSM-III-R, four additional items were included in the M-PTSD Civilian version to assess reexperiencing, psychogenic amnesia, hypervigilance, and hyperarousal symptoms (Lauterbach et al., 1997).

A short, ten-item form, Miss-10, is available (Hyer et al., 1991). M-PTSD-DS is an adapted version appropriate for Desert Storm War Zone personnel (Sloan et al., 1995). Also, a parallel version exists for administration to spouses/partners (Taft et al., 1999).

There is also the Revised Civilian Mississippi Scale for civilian samples (Norris and Perilla. 1996).
