First of its kind study conducted by BUSM finds women as resilient to combat stress as men
Date:6/7/2011

, PhD, an associate professor of psychiatry at BUSM and researcher at the National Center for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder in the VA Boston Healthcare System. "This finding is important because it appears to suggest fairly comparable levels of resilience to combat-related stressors for women and men, at least during the timeframe evaluated in this study," she added.

According to the researchers this finding is striking given that it contrasts with the widely accepted view that women are more vulnerable to the negative impact of trauma exposure than men. Future research is needed to promote a better understanding of the factors that may contribute to similar levels of resilience to combat trauma among female and male U.S. service-members deployed in support of OEF/OIF, as well as the limits of this phenomenon.
