Convergent validity of three posttraumatic symptom inventories among adult sexual abuse survivors

Gold, Jeffrey W and Cardeña, Etzel LU (1998) In Journal of Traumatic Stress 11(1). p.173-180
Abstract
We examined the convergent validity of three posttraumatic symptoms inventories, the civilian version of the Mississippi Scale for Combat-Related PTSD (CM-PTSD), the Trauma Symptom Checklist-40 (TSC-40), and the Response to Childhood Incest Questionnaire (RCIQ), in a sample of 52 adult sexual abuse survivors. The significant and moderate to strong correlations (r = .6 or higher) among these inventories supported their convergent validity. Comparison with other studies also suggests that these instruments can adequately discriminate clinical from nonclinical populations.
