English term or phrase:cyclical feedback loop
In essence, what Yule's, Williams and Joseph's model is saying is that an event triggers a cognitive response that is determined by a person's personality and appraisal outcomes. Appraisal outcomes are determined by personality, emotion, and coping in a cyclical feedback loop. The environment and social context are both independent but are influenced by the person's coping responses. The model, although complex, takes a sophisticated approach in its attempt to capture all the components in PTSD etiology and how they interact with each other. What stands out is their focus on the interaction of each of the components and how they influence each other. This model is an excellent representation of the complexity of both PTSD specifically and psychological processes in general.
