Conclusion: The results from this study demonstrate the feasibility and initial effectiveness of STAIR delivered in a mixed-gender group format for Veterans with PTSD. It should be noted, however, that male Veterans benefited more from this approach than female Veterans. The findings suggest the value of investigating Veterans' attitudes and beliefs about the benefits and drawbacks of mixed-gender group therapy for trauma-related difficulties.

Since the end of the Cold War in 1989, more than half of the countries in the world have been affected by armed conflicts (Marshall&Cole,  2014) with a direct impact on the lives of millions of people. For various reasons, research on the mental sequelae of war experience has often investigated refugees in high-income countries. The overwhelming majority of war survivors, however, are civilians who live in areas of (former) conflict in low-and middle-income countries (LMICs; Brundtland, 2000). Most epidemiological studies on mental disorders in war survivors have focused on posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression.

Conclusions:These data are the first to report the prevalence and association between sensory sensitivity and sleep disturbances in Veterans with TBI. These data also suggest that the underlying mechanism of the sleep-sensory relationship could be due in part to comorbid PTSD and autonomic nervous system hyperarousal.Citation:Elliott JE, Opel RA, Weymann KB, Chau AQ, Papesh MA, Callahan ML, Storzbach D, Lim MM. Sleep disturbances in traumatic brain injury: associations with sensory sensitivity.J Clin Sleep Med. 2018;14(7):1177–1186.
