DETERMINING THE COGNITIVE PORTS OF ENTRY AMONGST THE POST-TRAUMATIC STATES: TREATMENT IMPLICATIONS

  • Michael J. Scott (a1) and Stephen G. Stradling (a2)

Abstract

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is one of a range of trauma responses and has claimed the most therapeutic attention, but other post-traumatic states are probably, collectively, as common and produce a comparable level of functional impairment. It is suggested that in accordance with the cognitive theory of emotional disorders (Alford & Beck, 1997) the post-traumatic states are distinguished by differing cognitive content. Further, it is suggested that PTSD clients have particular information processing biases and those with a chronic form of the condition have a cognitive profile similar to those with a personality disorder. The differing cognitive architecture amongst the post-traumatic states suggests different treatment focii (Scott & Stradling, 2001).
