According to Briere and Scott (2015), ten characteristics that may affect the posttraumatic outcome include: “intentional acts of violence, as opposed to noninterpersonal events; the presence of life threat; physical injury; in war, the extent of combat exposure and involvement in killing others; witnessing death especially when the scene is grotesque; the loss of a friend or loved one due to a trauma; life-threatening illness and especially painful medical events and procedures; unpredictability and uncontrollability; sexual victimization; traumas of longer duration or greater frequency” (p.29). Among all of these, the most difficult one that client may deal with is the in war. This applies for soldiers and veterans.
Soldiers may be exposed to different types of trauma than other people, depend on the level of combat contact and their contribution in killing others is the most difficult to deal with. Soldiers are the one who suffer most characteristics that listed above. They are not only face with killing other people, but also witnessing death of other fellow soldiers who could be their close friends. They could get physical injury, deal with life-threatening illness, surgery and painful medical procedures during combat. In addition, they live with the feeling of not knowing what will happen to them and cannot control their lives. Because of these, they may easily get traumatize compare to other people and carry it through the rest of their life. Based on a research of shows that There are about 500,000 U.S troops who were served in Iraq and Afghanistan wars in the past 13 years has been diagnosed with PTSD (Reisman, 2016).
Another estimated 700,000 Vietnam veterans which is about 25% of soldiers who served in the war have some kind of psychological care for the delayed effects of combat exposure (Reisman, 2016). Another study known as the National Vietnam Veterans Longitudinal shows that after 40 years of Vietnam war 8.5% of females and 15.2% of males among theater veterans still have PTSD 15 years or more after their services (Schlenger et.al., 2014). These indicate PTSD could last for life time and it is difficult to overcome trauma for some people. However, if they can practice and believe in God, they may recover from trauma “I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears” (Psalms 34:4).

Briere & Scott list 10 trauma characteristics that they feel may affect the post-traumatic outcome. The ten trauma characteristics are intentional acts of violence, as opposed to non-interpersonal events, the presence of life threat, physical injury, in war, the extent of combat exposure, witnessing death, loss of a friend or loved one, life-threatening illness, and pain medications and procedures, unpredictability and uncontrollability, sexual victimization, the trauma of longer duration or greater frequency.
I believe the difficulty of dealing with each characteristic will vary from client to client. All ten characteristics would be complex for a client to deal with. The earlier the trauma starts the harder it is to deal with. “Certain traumatic events (for example, rape) are known to produce a much greater likelihood of PTSD than others” (Briere, J. N., & Scott, C. 2014).
I was struggling between the extent of combat exposure, sexual victimization, and trauma of longer duration or greater frequency. I think the trauma of longer duration or greater frequency would be the most difficult characteristic for the client to deal with. I chose this characteristic because both extent of combat exposure and sexual victimization can fall under this characteristic. “Early trauma exposure (for example, childhood sexual abuse) increases the likelihood of additional traumas later in life. Childhood traumas occur at the most vulnerable point in human development, typically involve relational maltreatment (as opposed to non-interpersonal trauma), and may continue over a long period of time, involving multiple, separate victimization experiences” (Briere, J. N., & Scott, C. 2014 p.30 & 53).
The amount and type of trauma an individual experienced make trauma response more intense, complex, and difficult. When supporting a client with trauma that has taken place over a long period of time such as from childhood to adulthood you have to proceed with caution because there are years of abuse you have to work through. “These compound child-adult trauma effects may make treatment a more complicated endeavor, since a range of symptoms and problems may be present simultaneously, each potentially requiring different approaches and strategies” (Briere, J. N., & Scott, C. 2014 p.31).
