Military-related PTSD and intimate relationships: From description to theory-driven research and intervention development

This article truly complemented the ethnographic aspect of my proposal. The aim of the is was to look at the intimate relationships that veterans suffering from PTSD maintain and the negative effect it has on those relationships in order to provide insight for later treatment. They in effect paved the way into exploring the true outcome of PTSD, not only with regard to the individual sufferer but to their families as well.  This particular study did not touch on children but it did reference study of the interplay between PTSD sufferers and their offspring  as a future avenue for study.
