AbstractDelirium is a significant medical condition that is common in hospitalized patients. Beyond the increased risk of mortality, patients who experience an episode of delirium often go on to develop long-term psychiatric disturbance, including symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). While there is a growing interest in understanding the complex relationship between delirium and PTSD, the existing literature is sparse and lacking harmony. Thus, this review seeks to develop a unified and thorough description of the cognitive and psychiatric underpinnings of post-delirium PTSD with the aims of promoting awarene...

AbstractThe inclusion of complex posttraumatic stress disorder (CPTSD) in the 11th revision of theInternational Classification of Diseases is an important development in the field of psychotraumatology. Complex PTSD was developed as a response to a clinical need to describe difficulties commonly associated with exposure to traumatic stressors that are predominantly of an interpersonal nature. With this special section, we bring attention to this common condition following exposure to traumatic stressors that only recently has been designated an official diagnosis. In this introduction, we review the history of CPTSD as a n...

AbstractThe factor structure ofDSM ‐5 posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has been extensively debated, with evidence supporting the recently proposed seven ‐factor hybrid model. However, few studies examining PTSD symptom structure have assessed the implications of these proposed models on diagnostic criteria and PTSD prevalence. In the present study, we examined seven alternativeDSM ‐5 PTSD models within a confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), using the Child PTSD Symptom Scale –Self‐Report forDSM ‐5 (CPSS ‐5). Additionally, we generated prevalence rates for each of the seven models by using a symptom‐...

AbstractCrime victimisation is a significant life event that can lead to the development of post-traumatic symptomology. Compared with the general population, victims of crime are significantly more likely to present with symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Restorative justice is an approach to criminal justice that considers the goal of the justice system to restore victims to their state pre-victimisation. The purpose of this review was to evaluate the effectiveness of restorative justice in reducing symptoms of post-traumatic stress that develop following victimisation. Relevant databases were searched to...

Millions of people with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) — from veterans to rape survivors — have new hope because of a watershed study showing that the injection of an anesthetic to a bundle of nerves in the neck can relieve their symptoms in a clinically significant way. The treatment is known as the stellate ganglion block, or SGB. Used since 1925 for problems such as pain in the arm and shingles, it is safe and effective. In the newly released, eight-week, U.S. Army-funded clinical trial of 108 active-duty service members with PTSD, the nonprofit research institute RTI International found that patients...

ConclusionsRumination is known to be associated with poor prognosis in mental health. This study suggests that rumination is a maladaptive coping style associated not only with worry, distress and illness severity, but also with socioeconomic status. Also, rumination demonstrated a specific association with panic disorder.
