Abstract:

In this pilot-study from the Center of Mental Health Research and Treatment in Berlin a systematic analysis of comorbid mission-related psychiatric diseases in 31 German soldiers was done using clinical impression and the SCID-II questionnaire Structurel Clinical Interview for DSM-IV1 for personality disorders. 89 showed clinical evidence of one or more comorbid psychiatric disorders, 74 had pathological findings in the SCID-II. Based on these experiences a cognitive behavioural group therapy, newly developed in Berlin, for traumatised soldiers will be presented in this article. Initial experiences with the group therapy program will be discussed.
