Etude des facteurs de risque au développement d'un trouble de stress post-traumatique après une inondation.

Abstract : Floods are the most frequent natural disasters worldwide and forecasts indicate an increase in frequency and intensity in the coming decades. Nowaday, the financial consequences of floods have been relatively well investigated. On the contrary, their psychological consequences have seldom been explored. However, floods can can trigger a range of psychiatric problems like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD),that is the most common. Post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms can persist for more than 17 years after flood. This thesis work proposes to study the emotional, social and environmental factors involved in the expression of PTSD symptoms in flood context. This investigation was carried out among three at-risk populations: individuals residing in at-risk areas, 'helpers' (both professional and non-professional) in relation with flood victims, as well as individuals affected by the flood. Our results highlight the suffering generated by this type of disaster, as we observe that individuals develop PTSD symptoms. Moreover, they shed light on different vulnerability factors involved in the expression of PTSD symptoms, such as cognitive strategies for emotional regulation, or attachment to place, for example.
