Abstract:This study examined the prevalence of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in a sample of Iranian American immigrants who immigrated to the United States either prior to and after the Iran-Iraq War. Iranian Americans (N = 117) solicited from a cultural center completed an online survey that assessed for PTSD symptoms, when they immigrated to the U.S., and demographic information. Of the initial 117 participants, a stratified random sample was selected from within the sample that met the criteria, resulting in 30 participants assigned to the Prewar Group (immigrated to the U.S. prior to the Iran-Iraq War), and 30 were assigned to the Postwar Group (immigrated to the U.S. during or immediately after the Iran-Iraq War. A chi-square analysis was used to determine significance between the two groups. The analysis supported the hypothesis that Iranians who immigrated to the U.S. following the Iran-Iraq War will have higher rates of PTSD than will those who arrived prior to the war. In the Postwar Group, 60.0% met the criteria for PTSD compared to 14.3% in the Prewar Group. Sociodemographic comparisons among the two groups were discussed as well. This study was consistent with research suggesting PTSD as a risk of immigration. The clinical implications of the findings were discussed.
