The Effect of Different Terror Exposures on the Course of Schizophrenia: A Twenty-year Follow-up of a Random Sample


The Effect of Different Terror Exposures on the Course of Schizophrenia: A Twenty-year Follow-up of a Random Sample

Abstract: 

In the general population, the rate of exposure to man-made terror with reactive psychopathology of a posttraumatic psychiatric disorder is 7.5% (Galea et al., 2002), but among persons with schizophrenia, this figure increases to 13%–29% (Spitzer et al., 2007). Despite these findings, studies are yet to examine the psychopathological aftermath of exposure to terror and consequences of different types of terrorist attacks (Resnick et al., 2003) among persons with schizophrenia.
