Abstract

Ilrotective and emergency services officers (e.g., police officers, firer fighters) can experience critical incidents capable of eliciting acute and chronic posttraumatic stress reactions repeatedly over the course of careers that can span decades. The fact that such studies reveal considerable diversity in traumatic stress outcomes, even among officers who faced the same event, makes it pertinent to explain this diversity, however. Many factors can be implicated in explaining this diversity.
