The AM Article on PTSD Is Done
« on: November 30, 2010, 03:31:10 AM »
I was reading the articles on the homepage of AM, and I saw the story about HIV and PTSD that David Evans was searching for forum participants.  Kill is featured.  It is a good article.

From the article:

Until 1980, PTSD didn’t have its own formal diagnostic criteria. But the syndrome has long been known to those who treat veterans; it was called “soldier’s heart” during the Civil War and “shell shock” after World War II.

In fact, "shell shock" was a term coined during and applied after World War I. I believe this was because of the particular features of trench warfare.

(link)

By the conclusion of World War II, I understand that "battle fatigue" was the term du jour and "shell shock" as a diagnostic label had been eschewed by clinicians.
