Problem analysis The results of both theoretical and practical studies that have attempted to determine the features of cognitive representations of traumatic experiences of military personnel are fragmentary in nature. The concept of "emotional sphere" proposed by Elliott R. and Greenberg L. includes the cognitive component, as one of the basic parts of traumatic personality experience, which can be used to conceptualize in the study of the traumatic experience of servicemen. The purpose of the study Тo determine structural features of cognitive representations of traumatic experience in Soldiers with PPD. Description of the sample The sample consists of two groups. The first group included middle-aged men who had served in the ATO area and were demobilized in the amount of 100 people. The second group is identical in terms of the above characteristics, but these are those servicemen who have Mississippi scale scores that correspond to the severity of the PDD. Conclusions: Demobilized PPD combatants exhibited a pronounced expression of all cognitive representations of traumatic experiences that are substantially closer to the themes of abandonment, humiliation, and injustice, at a significantly higher level than those demobilized without PPD. expressiveness of cognitive representations on the topics of trauma of abandonment, humiliation and injustice in the interaction of which revealed the phenomenon of "wrecking", do not contribute to the occurrence of PPD, unless potentiated by appropriate infantile traumatization.
