Does military sexual trauma moderate the impact of critical warzone experiences?

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The present research sought to replicate the finding that military sexual trauma (MST) moderates the effect of critical warzone experiences on mental health outcomes in a sample of male veterans. One-hundred eighty-one male veterans completed measures of MST, critical warzone experiences, and mental health symptoms. The hypothesized interaction was not significant, nor was a significant main effect observed for MST. In contrast, both critical warzone experiences and childhood maltreatment had significant main effects.
