Trauma Appraisal Questionnaire | TAQ

The TAQ, developed by the TSS Group, is a self-report measure of six trauma-related appraisals: fear, shame, anger, betrayal, self-blame, and alienation. 

Permission is not required to use the TAQ; however, we are eager to hear about your work and findings related to the TAQ.
