Abstract

The psychometric properties of the PTSD Checklist (PCL) were investigated in a sample of treatment-seeking and community-dwelling male veterans. In conjunction with previous reports, results from the present study indicate that the PCL possesses strong, robust psychometric properties. The current investigation suggests a cutoff score of 60-higher than previous investigations-related to posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) diagnosis derived from the Clinician-Administered PTSD Scale. This research supports the use of the PCL as a brief self-report measure of PTSD symptomatology.
