Abstract

Gender Differences in Trauma and Posttraumatic Stress Symptoms among Displaced Zimbabweans in South Africa

Posttraumatic stress symptoms (PTSS) and posttraumatic stress disorders (PTSD) are syndromes recognized in clinical practice as a significant health problem because of their nature and diagnoses and the staggering costs that comes with it to the individual and society at large. PTSS is so named because of the symptoms that are experienced after a traumatic event. PTSS and PTSD are the same thing except psychiatry prefers to differentiate between symptoms (PTSS) and the fully activated disorder (PTSD).

Keywords: Gender differences; Trauma; PTSD/PTSS; Zimbabweans
