Psychosis as precipitating trauma for PTSD: a treatment strategy.


Parallels between the experience of living with a psychotic illness and that of PTSD as a response to combat stress are explored, and similarities with respect to a loss of a sense of self are examined. Therapeutic implications of the possible connection between the two disorders are delineated in terms of a three-stage psychosocial recovery model.
