Posttraumatic Stress Disorder: Diagnosis and Assessment
This appendix provided a very brief discussion of some of the risk and protective factors that might influence who will develop PTSD. Not all people who are exposed to traumatic events develop a psychiatric disorder, such as depression or PTSD. Its development can depend on the intensity of the traumatic event or stressor and on a host of pretrauma and posttrauma factors.
