Matt MacCartney Letter:

Post 883:
http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=195462&page=36

" I was Jodi’s boyfriend for around two years and in that time, she wouldn’t so much as squish a bug. I caught her on many occasions, fishing bugs out of the tub, so they wouldn’t get washed down the drain. She had this crazy neurotic cat, that would flip out and attack her for no reason and she didn’t so much as swat it. Jodi is NOT a violent person!

When we ended our relationship, I was living and working at a distance. During that period, I began spending time with a colleague. One of my douche bag coworkers decided to “inform” her. There was lots of crying, many talks and a few letters. She was NEVER VIOLENT in any way. We remained friends and since then, she had a few other relationships ending with Travis. I personally know the man she was with before Travis. He and Jodi maintained a friendly relationship after they parted. He also had NO issues with violence. So why now? What changed?

Before Jodi was arrested we would talk on a regular basis. I am one of her longest lasting friends and former lovers. I could be a important character witness. At one point, I asked Jodi to leave me out of this situation, so as not draw attention to myself or my new family and since then, she has.

Her life is on the line. She could get the death penalty. Yet she’s made it a point not to involve me.
Why? Because I asked her not to….

That is the kind of person Jodi is!”

My dear Travis,
I don't know how I can go on without you.I am so grateful you came to my home when you were 8 years old to live with me.We had many happy times together,you were an easy boy to raise,and a great young man.It was a pleasure to be your grandmother.I will always love you.....Mummum.
~ Norma Sarvey, Riverside, California "


" June 17, 2008
My dearest Travis, words cannot express the deep loss I feel, knowing I will never be able to hear your voice again. I still can't believe I spoke to you last June 3rd. I wish you were still here ...but at the same time I am so relieved to know that you are with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I know you'll be successful up there ;) as you were down here. I always think about you and everytime I visit the temple, I'll think of you even more. I love you so much and I am so grateful for "our time" that you and I were able to be together... I'm still keeping my end of our promise and naming my first son after you :) I love you forever T-dogg. Thank you for being my anchor and light. I love you Angel.

*i'll be seeing you...*

119) why did you decide to tell the truth two years after the killing?
120) what made you change you mind and tell everyone about Travis' secret-the child picture?
121) you said you were sick to your stomach when you saw Travis with child pictures, so why did you sleep with him again?
122) would you classify your relationship with Travis Alexander as a love/hate relationship?
123) on June 4 2008 after you got up and ran toward the bathroom closet is it possible that Travis picked up the camera and moved it? Could that also explain the delay in his arrival and his anger at the closet door threshold?
124) given that there are guiding principles such as the law of attraction and passing down journals to future generations do you feel the Mormon church encourages burying the truth about issues that may be considered embarrassing?
125) can you give a few examples of what might be considered negative other than those already discussed?
126) how do you determine when you will tell the truth and when you will not tell the truth? What are the determining factors?
127) when did you find Travis' gun? Was it kept loaded in the closet?
128) today, March 5 2013, you stated before lunch that you think you filled the car up first. If you did have the third gas can, as we saw in several hypothetical situations after lunch, do you see it possible to put 8.301 gallons if gas in the car exhibit 237.011 and then 9.59 gallons and 2.74 gallons for a total of 12.368 gallons in the remaining 3 gas cans exhibits 237.012 and 237.013
129) you have described that sex was a way for Travis to relieve stress and later testified that sex was a way to relieve anger. Which is true? How do you know that?
130) would a screwdriver be required to take off the license plates
131) did you find it strange that only your license plate was messed with in that parking lot?
132) if you were travelling to a place you had never been before, meaning Utah, why didn't you map out different towns that would have gas or rest stations?
133) did you ever see a doctor for your memory issues?
134) if you were scared if Travis' anger and violence why would you go upstairs when he was banging his head when you knew he was already mad?
135) did Travis ever tell you he kept his gun loaded?
136) if you did not think the gun was loaded why chance grabbing a gun that might not be loaded? Instead of just running outside?
137) you stated that when you walked out of Starbucks you did not notice anything wrong with the car. How us it that the back license plate ended upside down?
138) why did you plan on going to see John Dixon when you were on your way to Utah to see Ryan?
139) how many men are you willing to be involved with at the same time
140) did you ever seek medical help for your mental condition? Have you ever taken medication for your memory issue? Did you ever tell anyone about your condition prior to the killing?
141) you told us you weren't able to make out the license plate leaning up against the curb because you are nearsighted. What is your prescription in each eye?
142) did anyone ever see you shaking?
143) so any of your journal entries discuss you shaking, blacking out or getting scrambled?
144) you claim to have memory lapses or gaps during times of stress or when you're being grilled. How is it you have such specific memories of violence and yelling by Travis such a long time ago if this is the case

Amber Valenti-Gloverposted toThe State vs Jodi Arias ~ Travis Alexander murder trial
Sunday at 21:35 ·

I am posting this in response to a question that I had seen regarding JA taking a polygraph test...It got my mind rolling so I did some research and this is what I found. I have no idea if she actually took a polygraph or not...I don't want this to misinterpreted at all...

MINUTE ENTRY/ RULING - SUPERIOR COURT OF ARIZONA MARICOPA COUNTY

The Court has considered the defendant's Motion to Allow Jury to Consider Polygraph Results During Sentencing Phase filed May 31, 2012, the State's Response to Defendant's Motion to Allow Jury to Consider Polygraph Results During Sentencing Phase filed June 12, 2012 and the oral argument on July 12, 2012.

The defendant asserts the result of any polygraph examination she takes is admissible as mitigating evidence in the penalty phase.

The Arizona Supreme Court has held such evidence inadmissible because it does not relate to "any aspect of the defendant's character, propensities or record and any of the circumstances of the offense". A.R.S. 13-751(G); State v. Harrod, 218 Ariz. 268, Paragraphs 37-46, 183 P.3d 519 (2008).

In Harrod, the defendant sought to present the results of a polygraph examination and make statements of innocence during the penalty phase. The Supreme Court deemed this evidence, which it characterized as residual doubt evidence, to not be mitigation because it did not relate to the circumstances of the crime. The Court stated that "because the penalty phase does not determine whether a defendant is guilty, the 'circumstances of the offense' language in 13-7[51](G) does not authorize a defendant to present residual doubt evidence. Rather this language relates to such factors, among others, as to how a defendant committed first degree murder." 218 Ariz. at Paragraph 43. The Court held that the defendant in Harrod did not have a constitutional or statutory right to present residual doubt evidence at his penalty phase proceeding and therefore the trial court properly excluded the results of a polygraph examination. Id. at Paragraph 46.

Although the defendant does not explain exactly what her polygraph evidence will purport to show, the Court believes its purpose will be the same as that asserted in Harrod - to express her innocence of the crime. Such evidence is irrelevant in the penalty phase of a capital case.

IT IS ORDERED denying the defendant's Motion to Allow Jury to Consider Polygraph Results During Sentencing Phase.

This case is eFiling eligible: http://www.clerkofcourt.maricopa.gov...ng/default.asp. Attorneys are encouraged to review Supreme Court Administrative Order 2011-140 to determine their mandatory participation in eFiling through AZTurboCourt.

Travis Alexander Arrest Record Questioned; Police Checking If Brother Was Actually In Custody

Posted: 03/12/2013 3:45 pm EDT
Story plus 9 pages of court docs at bottom of page.

Clipped:
" The booking photo (seen above this article next to a photo of Travis Alexander) does not resemble other pictures of the victim. The sheriff's department is now taking seriously the claims that Dennis Alexander committed the crimes and used his brother's name when he was caught.

Police are comparing the fingerprint records from the arrest in question with prints on file from Dennis Alexander's other arrests. The department hopes to complete the verification process this afternoon or evening, Martinez said. "

" Alexander's brother said Monday that the records are incorrect.

Dennis Gregory Alexander, told HuffPost that he committed the crime and falsely identified himself to arresting police officers as Travis Alexander, then later passed himself off in court as his brother.

"That was a time in my life when I was addicted to drugs and was a real mess," Dennis Alexander said. "I was stealing Sudafed, an ingredient in manufacturing methamphetamines … It's something that I am ashamed of. I have been clean for almost 10 years and it's something Travis forgave me for a long time ago."
An undated photo of Dennis Gregory Alexander provided
by the Alexander family.

Dennis Alexander said the incident detailed in court documents took place in March 2002, at a store in Riverside, Calif. He said he was attempting to leave the store (Stater Bros.) with drugs when he was confronted by a security guard."

IMO these are so powerful. They really put Travis in better perspective, and show that he was not some dog out for just a p-----of a--. I would think the jury would really like these. They show just how HE WAS HURT BY HER, not the other way around, and how he really tried to like her and she was such a liar and manipulator she "ruined his life". I think these emails are very very damaging to Jodi's case.

"NOTE ... she calls Travis ... IT 15:16


J: Who knows? At that point he had already almost killed me. I wasn't thinking when he almost killed me before that I was gonna possibly die, I was just thinking I couldn?t breathe, no air, that's all I could think of before I passed out, but it was later on I realized I could have died if he had just held on to my neck a little longer, so I didn't want that to happen, obviously, so I ran into the closet, and I slammed the door, and I intended to run through the opposite end of the door because it has another exit, and as soon as I got in there and began to run, I remembered where he kept a gun, so I grabbed it. I jumped up on the shelf. He kept it on the very top. I grabbed it and then I ran out the other door as he opening the door. And he ran, chasing me, and I turned around and pointed it at him so that it 15:16 would stop chasing me"

5:14 p.m. ET: The attorneys are at a sidebar with the judge.

5:13 p.m. ET:

Martinez asked: “Why don’t you tell us… what the mandate is involving lying?”

“Um… that more or less you’re condemned to hell,” said Arias.

“For lying, right?” Martinez asked.

“Yes,” said Arias.



5:12 p.m. ET: Martinez asked Arias if she really follows the Book of Mormon using it as a guide for her life. She said that is not a yes or no answer.

5:11 p.m. ET: Martinez is asking Arias about The Mormon Law of Chasity. He is now showing Arias an excerpt of the Book of Mormon that mentions lying, and how people will be condemned to hell for lying.

5:05 p.m. ET: The attorneys are at a sidebar with judge Stephens.

5:04 p.m. ET: Arias said she tried her best to be a good Mormon, but she followed guidance Alexander gave her. Martinez is now asking Arias about what the Book of Mormon says about lying.

5:03 p.m. ET: Martinez is now asking Arias about how she has read the Book of Mormon. Arias said yes she has read it, but not the index.

“I didn’t read it cover-to-cover, I just read to the end of the Book of Mormon. But they have a huge index in the back that I didn’t read. Sorry,” said Arias.

Martinez asked: “You tried to be a good Mormon, right?”

“I did my best to appear that way,” said Arias.

5:02 p.m. ET: The attorneys are at a sidebar with the judge.

5:01 p.m. ET:

“Well at that moment I didn’t have time to sit and examine it, I just grabbed it. I reached up – I didn’t get that high – I reached up my arm and grabbed it,” said Arias.

“I understand that you just reached up and grabbed it,” said Martinez. “I want to know if it was in a holster or not.”

“I can’t tell you,” said Arias.

5:00 p.m. ET: Defense attorney Nurmi seems to be objecting to every question Martinez asks Arias. One frequent objection Numi keeps using is augumentative.

5:42 p.m. ET: Martinez is asking Arias about how she stepped on shelf to reach Alexander's gun. Arias said she doesn't remember exactly which shelf she stepped on. Martinez is pointing out that the shelves are resting shelves.

5:39 p.m. ET: Arias said she doesn't know if the gun was loaded on June 4, 2008.

“Did you believe or not believe that the gun was loaded?” asked Martinez.

“I didn’t stop to really think about whether it was loaded or not so I don’t now. I just… the only time the gun came to my head – I grabbed it and pointed it at him so he would halt,” said Arias.

5:36 p.m. ET: Arias said yes she did tell Flores that Alexander did not own a gun, and that was a lie.

“Yes I do,” said Arias.

“That was a lie, is that what you’re saying now?” asked Martinez.

“Yes,” said Arias.

5:34 p.m. ET: Martinez is now asking if Arias told detective Esteban Flores days after Alexander did not have a gun just days after he died.

5:30 p.m. ET: The attorneys are at a sidebar with the judge.

5:28 p.m. ET: Martinez is asking Arias why she didn't call 911 when Alexander abused her. Arias said one of the reasons relates back to a situation that happened with her high school boyfriend.

Martinez asked: “Did anything stop you from calling 911?”

“Well in the heat of the moment, yeah, Travis did but afterward I could have,” said Arias.

“Sure you could have, right?” asked Martinez.

“Yes,” said Arias.

“And you didn’t though, right?” asked Martinez.

“That’s correct,” said Arias.

5:27 p.m. ET:

Martinez asked: “Isn’t it true that you knew it was wrong and you said, ‘I don’t care,’ even if it’s wrong – involving the sex – you’re going to do it anyway?”

“At one point, regarding when we would go all the way with vaginal sex, it reached a point where we did say that, yes,” said Arias.

5:25 p.m. ET: Martinez is now asking Arias about how she took guidance from Alexander about the Mormon Law of Chastity. He asked her if she ever told Alexander that "if it is wrong I don't want to be wrong." Arias said yes she did say that to Alexander.

5:22 p.m. ET: The attorneys are at a sidebar with the judge. Martinez was asking about how Arias was offended by the language Alexander used during the fight.

5:49 p.m. ET:

“There’s really nothing here that’s out of order, wouldn’t you agree?” asked Martinez.

“I agree with that,” said Arias.

5:48 p.m. ET: Martinez asked Arias if she stepped on that shelf, wouldn't it have tipped over, because they rest on little pins. Arias said the shelf did not tip over.

“Did you know that the rating on these shelves was 40 pounds? Did you know anything about that?”

At the time, Arias said she weight around 150 pounds.

5:42 p.m. ET: Martinez is asking Arias about how she stepped on shelf to reach Alexander's gun. Arias said she doesn't remember exactly which shelf she stepped on. Martinez is pointing out that the shelves are resting shelves.

Martinez asked: “Did you use anything to get up there or no?”

“Yes, I did,” replied Arias.

“What did you step on?” Martinez asked.

“I stepped briefly on the edge of the shelf and I held on to the edge of the shelf with my other hand and I grabbed the gun with my free hand,” said Arias.

5:55 p.m. ET: Judge Stephens has recessed court for the afternoon break. The live blog will resume when testimony picks back up at 6:10 p.m. ET. Our producer in the courtroom says it appears the attorneys are reviewing new questions from the jury.

5:54 p.m. ET: In Session's Beth Karas is in the courtroom, and she says the jurors have submitted yet more questions for Arias as Martinez grills her.

5:51 p.m. ET:

Martinez asked: “If he had already told you it was unloaded, then why did you think he was going to stop?”

“It was just a hope because it was my philosophy that if I had to look at the end of a barrel of a gun, I would stop. And I didn’t have time to sit and rationalize about whether or not he would care whether it was unloaded or loaded or what. I didn’t know, I just wanted him to stop,” said Arias.

5:50 p.m. ET:

6:35 p.m. ET: Nurmi has completed his follow up questions, and now Martinez is asking questions.

6:33 p.m. ET: Nurmi is now asking about whether Arias took pictures of her injuries to her neck in April 2008. Arias said Alexander choked her and it bruised her neck.

6:32 p.m. ET: The attorneys are at a sidebar with the judge.

6:31 p.m. ET: Arias said Alexander told her to not go to her bishop about her sexual sin, and she claims that after Alexander died she did go to her bishop about her sexual sin, but did not mention killing him.

6:29 p.m. ET: Arias said she was not a perfect Mormon, and she is talking about what a Mormon does when they commit a "transgression." For serious transgressions Mormons should speak with their bishop. Arias said she tried to go to the bishop about her sexual sin with Alexander.

6:28 p.m. ET: Defense attorney Nurmi is now asking Arias follow up questions.

6:26 p.m. ET: Juror questions: How many phone calls and text message conversations did you have with Alexander June 2 through June 4, 2008. Arias is reviewing the phone records now.

6:22 p.m. ET: Judge Stephens is reading additional questions from the jurors. The first juror question: How many times did you see Alexander's gun?

Arias said she saw it a few times before June 4, 2008.

Can experts save Arias?
By Graham Winch
updated 2:19 PM EDT, Thu March 14, 2013

clipped--

"The defense will likely call domestic violence expert Alyce LaViolette, and clinical and forensic psychologist Richard Samuels to bolster Arias' claims she was abused and has mental lapses.

LaViolette’s testimony may support Arias’ claim that she was in an abusive relationship. She may also have an explanation for what motivated Arias to lie about killing Alexander.

Samuels will likely testify about the psychological toll Alexander’s alleged abuse could have taken on Arias. He may also address whether it is plausible for Arias, due to emotional trauma, to have memory lapses from the day she killed Alexander.



2:10 p.m. ET: Judge Sherry Stephens said she is going to recess the court, and will allow Martinez to interview Samuels during the break. The live blog will pick back up at 4:00 p.m. ET when court resumes.

2:09 p.m. ET:

#JodiArias is OFF the STAND ...18 days and over 5500 questions!

— Vinnie Politan (@VinniePolitan) March 13, 2013

2:08 p.m. ET: Willmott ended her argument by saying Samuels has not changed anything, and is not bringing anything new into the trial that hasn't been already been disclosed to Martinez. Martinez said the presentation has new information, and information they jury should not see.

2:04 p.m. ET: The research Samuels is using for the basis of his testimony is accepted in the medical community according to Willmott.

2:02 p.m. ET: Willmott is going through all the reasons why Samuels can testify about his opinions regarding Arias memory lapses.

1:59 p.m. ET: Willmott said Martinez can have time to review the power point slide, and Samuels can also testify about why he is qualified about his 30 years of experience in the field.

1:57 p.m. ET: Defense Jennifer Willmott said the reason why Martinez is objecting to Samuels presentation, because it is actually helpful for Arias. Willmott said Samuels is basically going to say Arias suffers from PTSD.

1:53 p.m. ET: Martinez is going through a laundry list of objections he has with Samuels power presentation.

1:50 p.m. ET: Martinez says Samuels has a power point presentation with slides that depict a quote from a study and another quote from Time magazine. He says these quotes are hearsay, and he hasn't had time to go over the study.

1:48 p.m. ET: The judge is on the bench. Prosecutor Juan Martinez is objecting to new information Samuels is about to present. He says it is a disclosure violation.

1:34 p.m. ET: Arias is in the courtroom, along with her attorneys, and defense witness Richard Samuels. The judge should be taking the bench shortly, when the jury is seated, we should begin with testimony from Richard Samuels, PH.D. Psychologist. He will be on direct examination. "

4:12 p.m. ET: Willmott said Samuels is going to give a scientific definition of premeditated murder and how it relates to crime scenes, and not a legal definition. Martinez said it could confuse the jury so it should be barred.

5:28 p.m. ET: Samuels is explaining how amnesia can happen when someone experiences acute stress or have an acute stress disorder.

5:27 p.m. ET: Willmott is asking Samuels to explain "acute stress." Samuels said "acute stress" is some severe trauma that causes an individual great stress.

5:22 p.m. ET: Samuels said journals can help people remember things, and also help strengthen people's ability to store memories.

5:21 p.m. ET: Willmott is asking Samuels about Arias' journals. He said he has read all of them going back to junior high school.

5:20 p.m. ET:

Defense expert on the stand. Will his testimony save #JodiArias from the death penalty?

— Susan Hendricks (@SusanHendricks) March 14, 2013

5:19 p.m. ET:

“It’s entirely possible, and actually highly likely, that someone would not be able to recall anything about a situation. Or, if they do, it would be foggy or bits and pieces. But this is common, this is well-known and it’s not really arguable,” said Samuels.

5:18 p.m. ET: Willmott just brought up how Arias said she was in a "fog" during the attack and when she was driving out into the desert. Samuels said someone fleeing a scene seems be able to function in automatic function. So Samuels said in this "fog" people can even drive cars.

"Once a person enters this state, while the memories are not being formed, any activities that are involved in fleeing seem to be able to occur. Such as running away or getting into a car and driving away or getting on a horse and trotting away,” said Samuels.

5:15 p.m. ET: Willmott is Samuels if humans have any control over how their brain records memories, and he said now, and their ability to record memories gets worse with age. He also says in stressful situations people also don't have control of their emotions.

“When our emotions take over, we don’t have control. That’s why sometimes people make very bad decisions regarding relationships because their emotions overpower their reasoning,” said Dr. Samuels.

5:12 p.m. ET: The attorneys are at a sidebar with the judge.

5:11 p.m. ET:

“The brain is interested in survival and so all our energies are focused on self-protection. We don’t start thinking, ‘Oh what a beautiful color my attacker is wearing.’ We don’t think about that. We don’t think about, ‘Oh I wonder what song I’d like to have played at my funeral?’ We don’t think about that. We simply fight for our lives or we flee from the scene. That’s all that happens whether you’re a rat, an alligator or a human being,” said Samuels.

5:10 p.m. ET:

"People who suffer from stress-inducing trauma frequently will not recall what happened for a certain period starting with the beginning of the trauma until sometime thereafter, which could be measured in either hours or even days, sometimes even weeks,” said Dr. Samuels.

Samuels is now showing the jury this quote from an article that shows what happens when someone's brain is "under fire."

5:03 p.m. ET: The attorneys are at a sidebar with the judge.

5:49 p.m. ET: Arias was given two psychological tests during her interviews with Samuels. One of the tests was for PTSD.

5:48 p.m. ET: Samuels said acute stress disorder only last for a couple months after the trauma. If it lasts longer than that it is a different diagnosis.

5:43 p.m. ET: Samuels said common every day trauma can cause amnesia like being dunked in cold water.

“You don’t have to be in a horrible situation, but an everyday situation, and you’re still prone to having this transient global amnesia,” said Samuels.



5:40 p.m. ET:

“Perpetrators of horrible crimes can also develop post traumatic stress disorder for having acted as the source of the crime,” said Samuels.


5:39 p.m. ET: Samuels is explaining how amnesia can be proportional to the amount violence someone experiences.

6:22 p.m. ET: The jury was just seated, and the attorneys are at another sidebar with the judge.

6:19 p.m. ET: The judge is back on the stand, and the attorneys are at a sidebar.

5:59 p.m. ET: Judge Stephens has recessed court for 15 minutes. The live blog will resume at 6:15, when testimony picks back up.

5:58 p.m. ET: Samuels is now explaining to jury what PTSD and detachment means.

Dr. Samuels believes Arias has Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, an anxiety disorder. #JodiArias

— Beth Karas (@BethKaras) March 14, 2013

“What it means is that an individual has a stress-related disorder that involves certain characteristics that are seen over and over again in people that are similarly diagnosed. There may be a sense of detachment. There may be emotional blunting. There may be intrusive thoughts,” said Samuels.

5:57 p.m. ET:

Willmott asked, “Can this test be manipulated by people? Can you fake the answers?”

“Sure, absolutely,” said Samuels.

“And is that something that’s easy to do?” asked Willmott.“No, not in this test. Unless the person has read the manual, understands the concept of post traumatic stress disorder and is in their mind trying to prove to someone that they do suffer from this disorder. This is not that well-known. This is not in every psychologist’s office,” said Samuels.

5:56 p.m. ET: Samuels said that the PTSD test can be manipulated, but it is difficult for someone to do if they do not understand a lot about pyschology.



5:52 p.m. ET: Samuels said the results of the tests confirmed that Arias had PTSD disorder. He is now explaining how the tests work.

6:47 p.m. ET: Samuels is talking about all the patients he has had treating people with PTSD. He has over 30 years of working with victims of PTSD.

6:46 p.m. ET: Therefore, Arias can still experience PTSD even though she is the one who killed Alexander according to Samuels.

6:44 p.m. ET: Willmott is asking if someone can experience PTSD if they create the trauma. Samuels says new research indicates that perpetrators of crimes can experience PTSD.

6:40 p.m. ET: Samuels is further explaining how the PTSD test works and how it helps him diagnosis a patient.

6:38 p.m. ET:

“It’s not unusual at all. Some people go through life with a defense mechanism impeding their lives. But it took [defense attorney] Mr. Nurmi and I a couple of visits actually to help her get through -- to help her break down that barrier. And if you look at it from the perspective of therapy it would be considered a therapeutic breakthrough,” said Samuels.

“It’s not unusual at all. Some people go through life with a defense mechanism impeding their lives. But it took [defense attorney] Mr. Nurmi and I a couple of visits actually to help her get through -- to help her break down that barrier. And if you look at it from the perspective of therapy it would be considered a therapeutic breakthrough,” said Samuels.

Posting this here as it ties in and somewhat offers info, refutes the testimony Dr. Richard Samuels gave on the stand yesterday.

PTSD and the incorrect diagnosis:

Comparison of the Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Scale Versus the Clinician-Administered Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Scale in Domestic Violence Survivors


clipped--

" Findings confirmed that PTSD develops at a high base rate in this sample. The PDS generally performed well in relation to the CAPS although with a tendency to overdiagnose PTSD. The findings lend further support to the use of the PDS as a diagnostic tool for PTSD but indicate that it is better at identifying survivors with PTSD than those without the disorder."

Test guidelines:

"In addition, the last episode of battering had to be within 6 months of the assessment."
