Sažetak
Thy symptoms of the acute post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) were compared between 16 prisoners of war (POWs) tortured in detention camps and 20 soldiers with combat-related PTSD. PTSD was diagnosed in accordance with Watson's PTSD Questionnaire. Clinical symptoms were assessed in a structured clinical interview, using the Brief Symptom Inventory (BSI). Scores on PTSD scales were significantly higher in POWs. Dominant symptoms reported by POWs in a clinical interview were guilt feelings, psychic numbing, headache, and lack of energy. Soldiers with combat-related PTSD complained of panic attacks and more often reported uncontrolled aggressive behavior. The difference in the quality and quantity of PTSD symptoms and their clinical presentation between the soldiers who survived different traumas may be related to the specific combat and traumatic circumstances of their situation.
