Screening child survivors for post-traumatic stress disorders: experiences from the 'Jupiter' sinking


Twenty-four girls who survived the sinking of the 'Jupiter' in October 1988 were screened 10 days after the accident on the Impact of Events Scale, the Birleson Depression Scale and the Revised Children's Manifest Anxiety Scale. Scores at 10 days were associated strongly with help seeking over the following few months and were highly predictive of scores five months after the accident. Survivors were clearly differentiated from controls on all three measures. The battery seems useful in screening post-traumatic stress disorders in teenage children.
