The Post-Traumatic Stress Inventory is an assessment appropriate for most clientele. This assessment was designed to assess current style of functioning, related to past or current trauma, and is based upon the latest research, as opposed to standardized levels of traumatic pathology.
Typically, trauma tests and questionnaires are designed for a specific population in mind which may preclude certain clinical features or co-occurring populations. The PTSI-R was designed to avoid these issues, as well as to include previously excluded populations such as sexual addiction.
The Money and Work Adaptive Styles Index (MAWASI ©) evolved out the initial work of Bonnie Dendooven’s search to help others with issues surrounding money and work. Utilizing theories in attachment, neuromarketing, and behavioral economics Ms. Dendooven had originally designed the test with 9 subscales. A factor analysis revealed 12 subscales.
These 12 subscales represent the various ways (behaviorally, emotionally, and cognitively) that money and/or work has affected the individuals life. Moreover, they show how the indiviual has adpated his or her life to those thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
The Partner Sexuality Survey was designed by Dr. Stefanie Carnes to assist partners in identifying the areas of his or her own sexuality that may have been impacted by his or her relationship with the sex addict.
