Can murder be a source of PTSD for those who commit it? While it is clear that trauma can affect criminal behavior, little attention has been given to the notion that the act of murder may serve as a source of PTSD for the offender. The authors’ perception is that this topic has been insufficiently examined, and there may be a tendency to think that murderers have psychological characteristics that make them immune to the onset of a traumatic psychopathology.
