Partners' ratings of combat veterans' anger.
J Trauma Stress. 2002 Apr; 15(2):133-6.JT

Abstract

Spouse reports may serve as an important source of collateral information in the assessment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and associated behavioral problems. This study examined the concordance of anger reports among 94 combat veterans and their partners. Veterans' scores on subscales of the Multidimensional Anger Inventory were compared with scores on a parallel version completed by partners to assess veterans' anger symptomatology. The study examined whether the concordance between veteran and partner-reported anger is moderated by whether the veteran suffers from PTSD. There was moderate agreement between veterans and their partners on reports of anger and little evidence to suggest that PTSD diagnosis affected the convergence between partner and veteran scores.
