10.107. PTSD Checklist: DSM-5 Version (PCL-5)¶
For post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
10.107.1. History and guide¶
The PCL for the DSM-IV has three versions, PCL-M (military), PCL-C (civilian), and PCL-S (specific). See the PCL-C.
The PCL-5 (for DSM-5) is most similar to the PCL-S (specific), but the scoring system is different. There are no corresponding PCL-M or PCL-C versions of the PCL-5.
