Abstract

Since Foa, Steketee and Olasov-Rothbaum (1989) highlighted the importance of cognitive appraisal in trauma there have been many research studies supporting this view. This review paper considers the role of cognitive appraisal, in both the development and maintenance of post-traumatic stress disorder, after a motor vehicle accident. Aspects of cognitive appraisal, where evidence supports current psychological theory and where more knowledge is required, are discussed.
