We gratefully acknowledge the authors and editors who conducted these reviews, the majority of whom volunteered their time. Please help us recognize their work by citing the reviews when you use them (see Using and Citing the Reviews). Thanks also to the authors of the measures who responded to our emails and provided us with important feedback regarding the reviews and assistance in obtaining materials. We would like to express our gratitude to Bob Pynoos, Alan Steinberg, Alicia F. Lieberman, and Malcolm Gordon who recognized the potential of this idea, and provided key leadership and support that allowed the project to become a reality:
We would like to especially thank Beth Hudnall Stamm and Sidran Press for their guidance and support. Dr. Stamm's book, Measurement of Trauma, Stress, and Adaptation, published by Sidran Press, represents a significant contribution to the field, and served as a model for the reviews and an example of what our collaborative efforts could achieve.
We are also grateful to all the publishing companies that provided us with complimentary materials, feedback on the reviews, and permission to post sample items: Western Psychological Services, Psychological Assessment Resources, Sidran Press, the SASSI Institute, and PsychCorp.
Finally, we would like to give special thanks and acknowledgement to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA), which funds the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) through the Donald J. Cohen National Child Traumatic Stress Initiative and encourages collaboration among leaders in the field of child traumatic stress. Extraordinary vision created this Network and led to the development of this resource. Additional funding for this project was provided by an unrestricted educational grant from Pfizer, Inc.
