Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The current study examined the concordance of combat veterans' scores on the Mississippi Scale for Combat-Related PTSD, with scores on a parallel version of that instrument completed by partners to assess veterans' symptoms. Further, the study examined the impact of quality of the marital relationship on score concordance. Bivariate and multiple regression were used with a sample of 466 veteran-partner dyads obtained from the National Vietnam Veterans Readjustment Study. There was moderate agreement in symptom reporting between veterans and their partners and little evidence to suggest that the quality of the relationship impacted upon the association between partner and veteran scores.
