This study examined risk factors for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in Vietnam veterans: 68 women and 414 men of whom 88 were White, 63 Black, 80 Hispanic, 90 Native Hawaiian, and 93 Japanese American. Continuation ratio logistic regression was used to compare the predictive power of risk factors for the development versus maintenance of full or partial PTSD. The development of PTSD was related to premilitary, military, and postmilitary factors. The maintenance of PTSD was related… Expand
Predictors of the Development of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Among Police Officers
TLDR
A multiple logistic regression analysis indicated that the most potent risk factor for the development of full or partial PTSD was peritraumatic dissociation, and social support from colleagues during the event emerged as a significant protective factor. Expand
Predictors of posttraumatic stress disorder among police officers: A prospective study.
TLDR
Results showed that the modulation of PTSD symptomatology was associated with some pretraumatic and peritraumatic factors and posttraumatic factors, and key directions for future studies are proposed. Expand
Toward an Integrated Theoretical Model of Risk Factors for Post-Deployment PTSD and its Implications for Justice-Involved Veterans
At present, very little knowledge exists about individual differences in susceptibility to posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after combat trauma. Two differing perspectives have emerged. SomeExpand
Risk factors for post-deployment posttraumatic stress disorder in national guard/reserve service members
TLDR
Higher levels of combat exposure, life and family concerns during deployment, and post-deployment social support independently predicted PTSD, and perceived adequacy of training and preparation were significant moderators of the association between combat exposure and PTSD. Expand
Risk Factors for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder in Haitian Students
The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in undergraduate students after the Haiti earthquake on January 12, 2010, as well as to identify the riskExpand
Accounting for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Symptom Severity With Pre- and Posttrauma Measures
TLDR
Analysis of the most extensive set of known correlates of posttraumatic stress disorder symptoms obtained from a single sample of community-dwelling older adults supports a model of PTSD in which characteristics of the current trauma memory promote the development and maintenance of PTSD symptoms. Expand
Risk factors for posttraumatic stress disorder in persons with spinal cord injury.
TLDR
Patients at risk for PTSD should be identified early in the rehabilitation process and could benefit from psychological interventions with the aim of preventing PTSD development. Expand
Posttraumatic stress disorder: etiology, epidemiology, and treatment outcome.
TLDR
Characteristics of the trauma, particularly peritraumatic response and related cognitions, and posttrauma social support appear to confer the greatest risk for PTSD, and use of exposure therapies and anxiety management training as first-line treatment for PTSD is recommended. Expand
Risk and resilience factors for posttraumatic stress symptomatology in Gulf War I veterans.
TLDR
The majority of hypothesized associations held, suggesting that the mechanisms underlying PTSS may be similar across veteran cohorts, and a multivariate etiological perspective on PTSS was supported. Expand
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: Definition, Prevalence, and Risk Factors
TLDR
The definition and diagnostic criteria for post-traumatic stress disorder are provided and the prevalence data for this disorder are reviewed, with a particular focus on how prevalence rates vary with demographic characteristics and trauma type. Expand

Meta-analysis of risk factors for posttraumatic stress disorder in trauma-exposed adults.
TLDR
The effect size of all the risk factors was modest, but factors operating during or after the trauma, such as trauma severity, lack of social support, and additional life stress, had somewhat stronger effects than pretrauma factors. Expand
Traumatic events and posttraumatic stress disorder in an urban population of young adults.
TLDR
Life-style differences associated with differential exposure to situations that have a high risk for traumatic events and personal predispositions to the PTSD effects of traumatic events might be responsible for a substantial part of PTSD in this population. Expand
Posttraumatic stress disorder in an urban population of young adults: risk factors for chronicity.
TLDR
It is suggested that chronic PTSD may be associated with specific risk factors and clinical features and longitudinal data on the course of PTSD are needed to determine whether the distinct features and the medical and psychiatric histories of persons with chronic PTSD are complications attendant on a chronic course or coexisting disturbances that inhibit recovery. Expand
Prewar factors in combat-related posttraumatic stress disorder: structural equation modeling with a national sample of female and male Vietnam veterans.
TLDR
Analysis of relationships among prewar factors, dimensions of war-zone stress, and current posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptomatology using data from the National Vietnam Veterans Readjustment Study concluded that more attention should be given to critical developmental conditions, especially family instability and earlier trauma exposure, in conceptualizing PTSD in adults.

War stressors and symptom persistence in posttraumatic stress disorder
Abstract This study focused on delineating aspects of war stressors associated with risk for posttraumatic stress disorder in Vietnam veterans. Findings from 191 Vietnam war veterans are presented,Expand
Posttraumatic stress disorder in a national sample of female and male Vietnam veterans: risk factors, war-zone stressors, and resilience-recovery variables.
TLDR
Although war-zone stressors appeared preeminent for PTSD in men, posttrauma resilience-recovery variables were more salient for women, and researchers, policymakers, and clinicians are urged to take a broad view on trauma and its sequelae. Expand
A Descriptive Analysis of PTSD Chronicity in Vietnam Veterans
TLDR
The extent of chronicity observed in this sample underscores the need for treatments that address the persistence of posttraumatic symptoms, and identified 4 subtypes of post traumatic stress response. Expand
Psychological predictors of chronic posttraumatic stress disorder after motor vehicle accidents.
TLDR
Negative interpretation of intrusions, persistent medical problems, and rumination at 3 months were the most important predictors of PTSD symptoms at 1 year. Expand
A prospective investigation of the role of cognitive factors in persistent posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after physical or sexual assault.
TLDR
The findings support the cognitive model of PTSD proposed by Ehlers and Clark and suggest that effective treatment will need to address these cognitive factors. Expand
Predictors of chronic post-traumatic stress disorder. A prospective study.
TLDR
Depressive symptoms were the best predictors of PTSD at both time points, and intrusive symptoms and peri-traumatic dissociation were better at predicting four-month PTSD than one-year PTSD. Expand
