This study investigated a model of post-trauma reactions proposed initially by McFarlane. Two separate data sets, one obtained following a multiple shooting & the other reported by McFarlane following a natural disaster, were examined. The findings of both studies provide support for a cognitive processing conceptualization of the development of post-trauma reactions. (28 refs.)
