Abstract


Usually the first psychological reflections about post traumatic disorders date back to studies carried out during the first World War, nevertheless important investigations about nosological autonomy of serious traumatic syndrome were also implemented in the southernItaly. In particular D’Abundo had fixed the importance of the grave post-traumatic psychic manifestations, including punctual and accurate descriptions of the symptomatology and the relative psychopathological reflections, studying  and analyzing the psychical and mental post-traumatic manifestations produced by natural and military disasters. This author analyzed various clinical cases in order to compare these different types of post traumatic stress disorder, highlighting both the similarities and, above all, the differences between the consequences of these two traumatic events and so the necessity of a different kind of psychological intervention.
