Abstract

Guilt regarding combat experiences is often considered an associated symptom of PTSD in military veterans. Little is known, however, about the role combat guilt plays in the development and maintenance of PTSD. Inadequate measurement of combat-related guilt may be one reason forthis deficiency in the literature. In the present study, 40 veterans with PTSD completed a novel measure of combat guilt. Items on the scale assessed various types of guilt and shame concerning combat experiences (i.e., survival guilt. guilt over acts of omission and acts of commission. guilt about thoughts/feelings). Guilt was quite prevalent within this sample. and severity of guilt regarding combat was positivelycorrelated with the reexperiencing and avoidance symptoms of PTSD anda general measure of PTSD severity. Implications of these findings and recommendations for the development of measures for combat-related guilt are discussed. (C) 1997 John Wiley & Sons.
