Abstract

This paper explores the phenomenon of Military Sexual Trauma (MST). Specifically, this paper examines the question: is there a relationship between gender and psychiatric diagnoses in victims of MST? This will be accomplished through a comprehensive examination of the literature in regards to trauma, specifically MST and a retrospective record review of individuals who are identified as victims of MST.
