    • Abstract:
      The study assessed the effects of war captivity on posttraumatic stress symptoms and marital adjustment among Prisoners of War (POWs) from the Yom Kippur War. It was hypothesized that men's perception of level of forgiveness mediates the relation between posttraumatic symptoms and marital adjustment. The sample consisted of 157 Israeli veterans divided into 3 groups: 21 POWs with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), 58 former POWs without PTSD, and 70 control veterans. The findings indicated that former POWs with PTSD reported lower levels of marital satisfaction and forgiveness than veterans in the other 2 groups. In addition, men's perception of level of forgiveness mediated the relationship between their posttraumatic symptoms and their marital adjustment. The theoretical and clinical implications of these results are discussed. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]

      RESUMEN: Trastorno de estrés postraumático y adaptación conyugal: El rol mediador del perdón El estudio evaluó los efectos del cautiverio de guerra sobre los síntomas de estrés postraumático y la adaptación conyugal entre los prisioneros de la guerra del Yom Kippur. Se presentó la hipótesis de que la percepción que tienen los hombres del nivel de perdón actúa como mediadora de la relación entre los síntomas postraumáticos y la adaptación conyugal. La muestra consistió en 157 veteranos israelíes divididos en tres grupos: 21 prisioneros de guerra con trastorno de estrés postraumático (PTSD), 58 ex prisioneros de guerra sin trastorno de estrés postraumático, y 70 veteranos del grupo control. Los resultados indicaron que los ex prisioneros de guerra con trastorno de estrés postraumático manifestaron niveles más bajos de satisfacción conyugal y perdón que los veteranos de los otros dos grupos. Además, la percepción que tuvieron los hombres del nivel de perdón actuó como mediadora de la relación entre sus síntomas postraumáticos y su adaptación conyugal. Finalmente, se debaten las implicancias teóricas y clínicas de estos resultados. Palabras clave: síntomas postraumáticos; adaptación conyugal; perdón; prisioneros de guerra [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
