Sažetak
The aim of this study was to examine the prevalence of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) symptoms according to DSM IV clasification in 71 victims of armed robbery at their work place (post office, petrol station or grocery store). Nineteen were assaulted twice or three times, while 15 suffered mild or minor physical injury. Subjects were 47 female and 24 male employees who were having 1 to 11 months of sick leave period at the time of examination, and were under medical supervision. Their average education lasted 12 years. According to full psychiatric examination 28 subjects fulfilled DSM IV criteria for PTSD diagnosis, while others had different combination of symptoms. Statistical analysis showed that the whole group dominantly expressed persistent re-experience of the event (M= 3, 1 symptoms, out of 5). Avoidance symptoms were stated at the average of 2, 1 (out of 7), while arousal symptoms averaged 2, 8 (out of 5). Correlation analysis revealed that avoidance symptom cluster strongly saturates full PTSD diagnosis (r =.81). Those with full PTSD diagnosis (28) did not differ from others in age, level of education, number of assaults, length of sick leave period or the fact that they had or had not been physically injured. No difference was found between male and female subjects neither in symptom cluster structures nor in presence of full PTSD. Interestingly enough no statistically significant difference was found between those who suffered only one armed robbery and those who were assaulted two or three times in a short period of time (up to two years). The repetition of identical or very similar trauma situation did not contribute to increased number of psychological problems measured by PTSD scales.
