  • Great blog Dr. Nash. So, if the pedestrian has a near miss and his/her child is hit and severely injured/killed, what are the mediating "cognitive/appraisal/self-evaluative" conditions that would increase risk for PTSD or say, MDD? With PTSD would the person chastise himself as a "bad" or "not good enough" father, who failed to be a "good" father, and develop moral injury/PTSD? What if the person appraised himself and actions/inactions as a "personal failing, incompetent boob, a loser and failure", would this appraisal (of self, situation, etc) more likely lead to feelings self-blame and self-loathing and possibly MDD?

    Warm regards,
    Steve Messer
