The primary objective of this study is to explore the relationship of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) to the parent-child relationship of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans. This study used a cross-sectional design to evaluate 38 Iraq and Afghanistan Combat Veterans with PTSD, with children between the ages of 6 to 16-years. Participants were administered the PTSD Checklist - 5 (PCL-5), Combat Exposure Scale (CES), and Parent Relationship Questionnaire - Child and Adolescent Form (PRQ-CA). Hierarchical regressions were used to evaluate PTSD severity and criterion D (negative alterations in cognitions and mood) with the parent-child relationship. Although no significant relationships were found, this study provides insight for future research. Researchers recommend establishing a better understanding of parenting behaviors within the parent-child relationship that may be influential on the quality of the relationship.
