This literature review incorporates a case study to discuss the relationship between the post-war life behaviors of older adults who have experienced war-related trauma. The first behavior is unconscious recall of war-related scenes, and older adults with PTSD are more likely to recall specific traumatic war memories. The second effect is that war-related trauma in older adults can indirectly and directly produce intergenerational transmission, and this transmission can affect all three generations. To be more specific, there are three key components that lead to intergenerational transmission: functioning and involvement in the family unit; family atmosphere and patterns of communication. In addition to this, providing appropriate treatment for PTSD in older adults and how encouraging them to engage in treatment is a future concern.
