Combat Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

In societies that have experienced war, many survivors suffer lasting psychological effects, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The experience of battle is inherently traumatic. Isolation is central to this trauma. Civilian society's common lack of interest in hearing about war traumas, along with survivors' own denial, make healing difficult (Herman, 1992). PTSD has gone by various names in different wars, notably "shell shock" in World War I. Women war veterans are as prone as men to PTSD, but more men than women are exposed to combat trauma (Goldstein, 2001, pp. 259-263).
