Living in Fear: Exploring the Effects of Anticipated Trauma


This project is designed to examine the nature of reactions to "anticipated," rather than previously experienced, traumatic events. The present study is designed to: (1) conduct preliminary assessments of the nature of such "anticipatory" pscyhological responses in three different stressor groups, (2) identify psychosocial predictors and coorelates of such responses, and (3) examine the relationships of such states to other indices of adjustment.
