Abstract

This paper analyzes the psychopathological consequences, including both posttraumatic and associated symptoms, of being exposed to thee types of events: accidents, physical violence and psychological violence. The sample consisted of 138 participants: 41 had experienced some kind of accident, 57 some form of physical violence and 40 psychological violence. Results showed significant intergroup differences in the way they have experiences and the implications of the events. However, there were no significant inter-group differences in symptom, neither in posttraumatic symptoms, nor in associated symptoms (considering anxiety, depression, alcohol use and self-esteem). Consequently, results seem to support global conception of victims that include any kind of victim whatever the specific event type suffered.
