Abstract [en]

Harvard-Uppsala Trauma Questionnaire for Children (HUTQ-C) is an instrument developed from the adult version of the Harvard Trauma Questionnaire (HTQ) by adding 13 child specific items. The HUTQ-C is used to identify traumatic events among children. However, no psychometric evaluation of the Kurdish translation of the HUTQ-C has been published. The aim of this article was to study the psychometric characteristics of the Kurdish version of the HUTQC. Data on HUTQ-C were collected for 100 street working children and 100 school children in Duhok. The internal consistency of the HUTQ-C was examined with Cronbach's alpha. The convergent validity of the HUTQ-C was examined by comparison with the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL). The internal consistency for the total 30 items HUTQ-C of the three domains, experienced, witnessed and heard, showed good internal consistency; Cronbach’s alpha was 0.83. The HUTQ-C showed higher internal consistency than both the original 17 items from HTQ and the added 13 child specific items, when these were examined separately. There was significant difference in HUTQ-C scores for those with normal range compared to those with clinical range on the anxious/depressed scale of Child Behavior Check List (CBCL) (KruskalWallis Test=6.22, p<0.05) supporting convergent validity. The Kurdish HUTQ-C shows promising reliability and validity.
