Study examines predictors of disturbed sleep in U.S. veterans

Trauma exposure itself may not be an independent risk factor for disturbed sleep in veterans, according to a study in the February issue of the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine. According to the authors, a tendency to cope by using substances and neurotic personality (a trait characterized by fear, anxiety, moodiness, worry, envy, frustration, jealousy, and loneliness) may partially explain sleep disturbance, above and beyond a diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
