Symptom severity in PTSD and comorbid psychopathology : A latent profile analysis among traumatized veterans

Individuals diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) show remarkably different symptom presentations. Identification of diagnostic profiles of PTSD may contribute to knowledge about treatment modifications to enhance treatment effectiveness. The present study aimed to identify symptom severity classes among 236 Dutch veterans based on a broad range of psychopathology outcomes, including PTSD, using Latent Profile Analysis (LPA).

Secondary traumatization, relationship problems, and adult children’s wellbeing : Long-term effects of World War II in the Netherlands

Front 14-18 : The Experience of Battle in WWI and the Fascist Culture of Violence in Post-War Germany

Experience of battle in the First World War can be seen as both a laboratory for fascism and a catalyst of totalitarian violence.

The study of service dogs for veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder : a scoping literature review

The therapeutic application of human–animal interaction has gained interest recently. One form this interest takes is the use of service dogs as complementary treatment for veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Many reports on the positive effect of PTSD Service Dogs (PSDs) on veterans exist, though most are indirect, anecdotal, or based on self-perceived welfare by veterans. They therefore only give a partial insight into PSD effect.
