Gender Differences in PTSD and Relationship Functioning
Many clinicians are aware of the painful impact of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) on individuals' lives, including disrupting sleep, interfering with work and hobbies, and damaging self-worth. A growing body of research shows that PTSD is also harmful for some of the most important relationships in people's lives, including relationships with family and intimate partners. This tends to be especially true for military veterans.
Occupational posttraumatic stress disorder & workplace violence
There is growing evidence that workers at jobs that involve face-to-face interactions with distressed or constrained populations, such as health care, retail services, and prison systems, face significant risk for workplace violence (WPV). Experiencing traumatic violent events at work can have serious mental health consequences, including the development of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
