The Aftermath of Combat-Related PTSD: Toward an Understanding of Transgenerational Trauma
Pearrow, Melissa; Cosgrove, Lisa
Communication Disorders Quarterly, v30 n2 p77-82 2009
The number of military personnel who are involved in combat situations continues to increase. As a result, researchers have identified risk factors associated with the development of combat-related posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The authors of this article review some of the characteristics of military personnel involved in these conflicts, factors unique to the current military actions, and symptom presentation and prevalence rates of PTSD among those serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. They discuss mechanisms for the transgenerational transmission of trauma symptoms and identify strategies for interventions.
