The questionnaire is available in 3 identical versions, one recording the self-assessment of somatic symptoms by the child, adolescent or adult, and the other recording the assessment of symptoms by a parent or caregiver and another person (e.g. a doctor). In this way, it is possible to compare the perception of symptoms by different sources, their differences and similarities in the experience of somatic symptoms.

The manual describes the basic psychometric properties of the PSS, which were determined on a sample of 1637 participants, children, adolescents and adults. The statistical indicators obtained in the normative and clinical samples are presented in the tables. The PSS questionnaire belongs to the A category of psychodiagnostic instruments and can be used by professionals from various fields - psychologists, psychiatrists, physicians, social workers, educators, rehabilitators, etc.
