Victimization and PTSD in Ugandan Youth

Mandrup, L. & Elklit, A., Eds.: Open Journal of Epidemiology, (2014)

Objectives: The aim of this study is to investigate the indirect and direct exposure to 20 potentially traumatic events and its relation with PTSD in a Ugandan sample of senior 3rd year students and to perform cross-cultural comparisons with previous studies examining this age group. Socio-economic status, coping styles, negative affect, and somatization are further examined.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in Children and Adolescents

Smita Srivastava, Eds.: Tufts Medical Center, (2011)

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in children and adolescents occurs when a child is exposed to one or more events that are unexpected, uncontrollable, life-threatening, and likely to cause serious harm or injury to himself/herself or someone significantly important to the child. In response, the child experiences fear, hopelessness, or horror and responds with a characteristic set of physiological and psychological reactions, which perpetuates the overwhelming and confusing feelings. Symptoms are characterized into three groups: persistent, intrusive re-experiencing of traumatic recollections; avoidance of reminders/numbing; and increased arousal.

Children and teens with PTSD can have a number of symptoms after a trauma that fall into three categories: (1) Reliving the trauma in some way; (2) Attempts to avoid anything that reminds the child or teen of the trauma; (3) Very high anxiety (also called "hyperarousal") and being easily startled. Children and teens with PTSD usually have some symptoms from each of these categories.
