Ss were 657 students, ages 14-24, from 2 areas of high risk that were bombarded by missiles. They were administered a self-report Stress Reactions Scale that measured adverse emotional, cognitive, and physiological disturbance symptoms at 2 points in time, the 1st and 4th weeks of the war. Between these 2 points, there was a noted reduction in incidents of stress reaction. Ss from the most attacked area reported significantly greater frequency of some symptoms; female Ss reported a higher frequency of stress reactions, specifically, 7th grade girls from the most attacked area.
