dc.description.abstractThis study examines a number of risk factors for trauma symptoms, including posttraumatic cognitions, ongoing chronic pain, and severity of physical injury in a sample of N=136 university students and community members who experienced a MVA. Results indicated that posttraumatic cognitions and physical pain ratings predicted PTSD symptoms while physical injury severity was not a significant predictor. The findings imply that unhelpful posttraumatic cognitions and reducing subjective pain levels play an important role in treatment interventions while physical injury severity may not be as critical for emotional functioning following a traumatic MVA.en
