General Description

The CES-A-S uses nine items to evaluate the centrality that an experienced traumatic event holds for the way the respondent refers to new experiences and to his/her own life story and identity. Its Portuguese short version for adolescents was validated using a community and forensic adolescent samples aged 12 to 21 years old.
