The aim of the paper is to study a risk factors of PTSD symptoms intensity in two samples of Polish flood and fire survivors identified earlier in meta-analyses of data based on international projects. It was expected that the impact of risk factors will be the same as in meta-analyses, considering the eminent role of the prior-, peri-and posttraumatic factors. The second aim of the study was to verify the hypothesis whether the temperamental trait identified as emotional reactivity plays a role in the process of developing PTSD. Data gathered from 526 flood survivors and 319 fire survivors (home fire and fire in the workplace) were analyzed. Such variables were taken into account as: gender, age, education, exposure to trauma (life and health threat as well as losses in property), peri-traumatic emotions, dissociation experience, strategy of coping with stress focused on emotions, emotional reactivity, prior traumas, following psychiatric problems, and amount and satisfaction with achieved social support. The results showed that the risk factors identified in previous meta-analyses are also related to PTSD symptoms intensity in both Polish samples.. Moreover, the findings demonstrate the important role of emotional reactivity, as a direct risk factor related to the intensity of PTSD symptoms as well as the factor related to other risk factors.
