Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Checklist and DSM-5 (PCL-5)

The PCL-5 is a 20-item self-report checklist of symptoms that can help clinicians screen patients for PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder). The scale can assist in making a diagnosis and in monitoring change during and after treatment.


The VA site suggests the scale can be completed in 5-10 minutes.

The scores range from 0 to 80.

The items are organized according to DSM-5 clusters.
