Dr. Tyler Smith's Publication: Millennium Cohort PTSD Trajectories Using LGMM March2012

Bonanno GA, Mancini AD, Horton, JL, Powell TM, LeardMann CA, Boyko EJ, Wells TS, Hooper TI, Gackstetter GD, Smith TC. Trajectories of Trauma Symptoms and Resilience in Deployed U.S. Military Service Members: A Prospective Cohort Study. British Journal of Psychiatry, 2012 Mar (200):317-323.

Symptoms of posttraumatic stress (PTS) were examined over time in relation to deployment. Four classes of PTS trajectories were identified for both single and multiple deployers, with over 80% of the deployers exhibiting a stable trajectory of low symptoms (i.e., resilience) pre- to post-deployment. Several factors predicting PTS trajectories were identified, which may direct future research aimed at decreasing the risk of posttraumatic stress disorder among deployers.
