dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study is to better understand, through retrospection, how military spouses recognized the likelihood that their veteran needed to be evaluated for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Existing research examines the role educating spouses of veterans with PTSD can play in the detection and diagnosis of PTSD but it does not identify specific educational needs of spouses. An online-survey was administered to spouses of combat veterans with PTSD. Themes between respondents were identified as need for self-care, avoiding self-blame, and tolerance and understanding for the veteran. Participants discussed lack of education on PTSD and redeployment issues as well as perceived lack of support by the military during deployment and redeployment processes. en_US
