In this study, patterns of exposure to distinct types of life stressors were compared between 134 children attending a military child psychiatric clinic & a matched military community control sample. Compared with the community sample, clinic-referred children had experienced higher levels of normative stressful events; however, these differences were no longer significant when controlling for events related to parental functioning.
