The Effectiveness of OSU-PTSD Screening Survey in Natural Disasters.
Bulut, Sefa; Palmer, Linda; Oehler-Stinnett, Judy; Bulut, Solmaz
There is little empirical research existing in the areas of natural disaster's effects on children's mental health. Therefore, the purpose of this study was twofold. First, it examined the effectiveness of the Oklahoma State University Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (OSU-PTSD) Screening Scale after two different types of natural disasters. The participants in this study were children who have been exposed to tornados and earthquakes. Secondly, the study compared the single-short term disaster with multiple-prolonged disaster in terms of their effects on children's PTSD reactions in Turkey and the United States. (Author)
