Network Analysis of Posttraumatic Growth and Posttraumatic Stress Symptomatology in Covid-19 Infected Peruvian Adults

Author(s): Cristian Ramos-Vera*, Antonio Serpa Barrientos

Abstract

The aim was to estimate the network analysis between indicators of stress and posttraumatic growth in Peruvian adults infected with COVID-19. A total of 456 Peruvian adults were studied, and two self-report health measures were applied in Spanish: Impact of event scale-6 (IES-6) and Posttraumatic Growth Inventory- Short Form (PTGI-SF). The research was quantitative and correlational in nature, evaluated by means of a Gaussian graphical model of partial correlations and the stability of network relationships were verified by Bootstraping. The most central negative posttraumatic symptoms were between intrusive thoughts and avoidance of intrusive thoughts by COVID-19 (E3 and E5). In the PTGI-SF domain, measures of higher centrality were reported for appreciation for life and religious faith (C2 and C9). The reagent associated with life appreciation (C2) plays the role of intermediary between the connecting pathways of the other core elements in the activation of the network system. The highest relationship was found between the hyper vigilance reagents and concentration problems by COVID-19 (E2 and E6). There were four positive relationships and five negative associations between stress symptoms and posttraumatic growth, the largest effect sizes included the core symptom of avoidance of intrusive thoughts with appreciation for life directly and inverse or negative relationship with spiritual growth.
