Abstract

People use many different coping strategies to deal with their traumatic recollections. Twenty-five British World War II veterans were interviewed regarding the ways they used social support both during the war and in the years afterwards. The findings demonstrate that social support is used in fundamentally different ways. During the war comradeship was particularly important and even fifty years after the war comrades are still a valuable resource for discussing war experiences, and dealing with the emotional contentof traumatic recollections. Veterans rely on wives and families to help deal with the more physical and practical elements of coping, but tend not todiscuss their traumatic memories with them. The findings show that social support is an important lifelong coping strategy for World War II veterans.
