The Harvard Trauma Questionnaire

D.G.L. van Dijk, F.A.M. Kortmann, M. Kooyman, J. Bot

Many refugees in the Netherlands are victims of traumatic events, both in their native country and in the period after migration. Studies on ptsd and co-morbid psychopathology in torture victims lead to the development of the Harvard Trauma Questionnaire (htq). This paper describes a pilot-study on its validity and practical applicability in an ethnically mixed population of hospitalized refugees. The results seem positive.
