The Foundation has also developed a 13 item version of the Children’s Revised Impact of Event Scale, adding 5 items to evaluate Arousal. As Horowitz predicted, these items do not always load on a separate factor and as the Perrin et al (2005) paper illustrates, the CRIES-8 performs equally well as the CRIES-13. We therefore recommend using the CRIES-8 as a screening tool.
