    Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder And Depression In Personnel Of Nigeria Police Force: Implications For Psychotherapy

    Abstract

    Psychological disorders associated with combat operations among active duty military
    and police personnel have become one of the most serious issues compelling the
    increasing attention of scholars in traumatic stress studies, psychology, psychiatry,
    contemporary medicine, human development, military and police administrators. Most of
    the research investigation on this insidious mental health crisis has, however, been
    reported in military populations more than in police personnel. In addition, very few
    studies have examined the prevalence of post-traumatic stress disorder and depression in
    Nigeria and the role of combat deployment on the manifestation of PTSD symptoms
    among personnel of the Nigeria Police Force. The purpose of the current article is to
    summarize and discuss the current empirical research on the prevalence of PTSD and
    depression in personnel of Nigeria Police Force, using cohorts from Federal Capital
    Territory, Abuja (FCT-Abuja); Abia, Benue and Lagos states, Nigeria, who returned
    from counter terrorism, insurgency operations and other combat duties, and the impact
    of combat deployment on PTSD symptoms manifestation in the cohort. The article, also,
    highlights implications of the research findings for psychotherapy as well as recommends
    a holistic psychological model, the Three-Dimensional Psychological Intervention
    Strategy (3-DPIS) Model, integrating psychological science, art and culture in
    psychotherapy, to address the identified mental health crisis
