Posttraumatic Stress Related to Orlando Nightclub Shooting LGBTQ Identity and Media Use
First, J., Shin, H., Figueroa-Caballero, A., et al. (2023). Posttraumatic Stress Related to Orlando Nightclub Shooting: LGBTQ Identity and Media Use. (Abstract only.) Journal of Loss and Trauma. 28(4):298-314.
The authors examined the effect of media how the Pulse Nightclub shooting affected post-traumatic stress symptoms (PTS) in U.S. adults. The results show that exposure to media about the Pulse Nightclub shooting directly affected emotional response and post-traumatic stress (PTS) symptoms (with those identifying as LGBTQ+ having stronger reactions). Ceasing consumption of the media coverage “mediated the relationship between exposure to media coverage and PTS.”
