What we do

The Trauma Studies Center's main mission is to improve knowledge about traumatic events by conducting research projects. These are made possible with the help of public funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Fonds de recherche du Québec - Culture et Société, and the Centre de recherches en sciences humaines. To carry out these projects, we rely on the active participation of workplaces and victims of traumatic events. Are you a researcher or manager and would like to be involved in a research project?

Beck Anxiety Inventory; BAI

AUTHORS: AARON T. BECK; NORMAN EPSTEIN; GARY BROWN; ROBERT A. STEER

What the questionnaire measures :

This instrument consists of 21 multiple choice questions that measure levels of anxiety in both adolescents and adults.

Between 0 and 7, there is a minimal level of anxiety; between 8 and 15, mild anxiety; between 16 and 25, moderate; and between 26 and 63, severe. This questionnaire is relatively short, and should take between 5 to 10 minutes to complete.
