To find these articles, click to the Articles tab of the Psychology LibGuide. Choose PsycINFO. It will take you to the biggest collection of validation and reliability articles with the least about of clutter to look through.
Search "Childhood Trauma Questionnaire" AND validity. Use the quotation marks and the AND to focus the results. Scroll down the search page and click Linked Full Text. Don't limit by date, as many of these articles are older. For validity and reliability, older is OK because once the validity and reliability are established, researchers don't go back and do it again.
This search will give you 77 results. Don't use the German, Swiss, Italian, etc. language studies. Stick with studies of the measure in English. Usually searching validity will also bring up reliability. If you don't get what you need, search "Childhood Trauma Questionnaire" AND reliability.
Then search "Brief Symptom Inventory" AND validity. As before, limit to Linked Full Text, but not by date. This search returns 386 results.
You mentioned a problem with the links you saved when you were searching in the library. Several of the psychology databases don't put the link at the top of your browser. To get back to the article, you need the persistent link. To grab that link from the results, click the title of the article. The Permalink button is in the right toolbar.
Thanks for Asking a Librarian!
