This study compares a sample of PTSD-positive, female survivors of interpersonal assault (n = 162) to a sample of similarly traumatized male counterparts (n = 45) on a number of variables, including PTSD-symptom severity, depressive symptoms, anger, guilt, and health-related concerns. Results indicate that male and female interpersonal assault survivors presented similarly with respect to PTSD and depressive symptomatology and reported comparable levels of guilt and that women reported significantly more health-related complaints than men did. With respect to the experience of anger, men report significant elevations on the state anger subscale of the State-Trait Anger Expression Inventory compared to women. (Contains 1 note and 2 tables.)
