2016 Pre and Post Summary of Client Trauma Symptoms

In 2016, we added a pre and post trauma symptoms survey to our client satisfaction questionnaire.  Clients responded to a trauma symptom questionnaire when an intake was completed and then asked to rate the same trauma symptoms when their case was concluded.  The following symptoms were rated on a scale of 1-5 (one being no symptom and 5 being extreme symptom):

  • Fear
  • Tension
  • Anxiety
  • Guilt
  • Anger
  • Sadness

85 Clients completed both the pre and the post survey.  Post surveys were completed by individuals who did not have prior contact with the client.

What we found was that post surveys showed a significant reduction in trauma symptoms in five of the six categories and remained the same (relatively low) in the guilt category.

Symptom Pre Post
Fear 4 2
Tension 4 2
Anxiety 4 2
Guilt 2 2
Anger 3 2
Sadness 4 2
