Abstract

As noted earlier, stress-response syndromes have been resisted by the mental health community until relatively recently. Indeed, it is still the cause of debate between various theoretical positions. As Figley and Sprenkle (1978) and Schultz (1984) stress, the families of PTSD patients have also been largely ignored. Consequently, as Scurfield (1985) states, little attention has been given to the impact of PTSD on families and family treatment of families with a member suffering from PTSD.
