The CRTES Assesment was created in 2002 by Dr. Russel T. Jones at Virginia Tech. The CRTES is a 23-item self-report measure designed to assess psychological responses to stressful life events. The measure is based on the Horowitz Impact of Events Scale and was initially modified to assess Intrusion and Avoidance symptoms based on DSM-III-R criteria. The scale was recently modified to include assessment of Arousal and to update the items with regard to DSM-IV criteria.
