Resilience and Knowledge of PTSD Symptoms in Military Spouses


Military spouses are in a unique position to detect changes in behavior in their Service member spouse. The current study assessed if military spousal knowledge of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms and access to resources about PTSD was related to a higher level of resilience. Results suggest that access to helpful resources increases resilience.
