Following the publication of a new review article on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in the British Medical Bulletin on Wednesday 22 April 2015, PTSD expert and author of the article, Professor Neil Greenberg, has discussed the new paper.
He said: “PTSD is not a new phenomenon. The world has been, as is likely to be, a potentially traumatic place. However, since PTSD first entered the diagnostic text books in 1980 our understanding of the condition has changed and is likely to continue to change as new research is published and clinical experience grows.
“I am delighted to have had the opportunity to have a review paper on PTSD published in the British Medical Bulletin and I very much hope that the article will serve as a useful resource to anyone who is interested in Psychotraumatology.
“Much of the work to increase our understanding about the impact of traumatic events in the UK has been undertaken by researchers at King's College London and for military service the King’s Centre for Military Health Research and by members of the United Kingdom Psychological Trauma Society.
“Further afield the International Society and European Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ISTSS and ESTSS) have also furthered the understanding of traumatic stress related conditions including PTSD. The review paper aims to bring contemporary evidence together and sets out some of the challenges for the future.”
The PTSD review paper can be accessed alongside a wealth of information and research relating to trauma and trauma risk management. Please click here to access the research web page and PTSD review paper.
