Complex trauma - torture and other serious abuses suffered in the coun- try of origin or along the migratory route - seems to have reached an "epidemic" dimension in the context of migratory flows towards Italy and Europe. In this context it becomes particularly relevant to understand the possible factors favoring the development of the clinical picture that has been introduced by some authors as Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (cPTSD). The clinical case of Mohamed, addressed here with a cognitivist approach both in the aspects of case formulation and phase-oriented treatment (stabilization, processing of traumatic memories, integration) suggests that elements of vulnerability particularly relevant for the development of cPTSD in adult can be some personality styles and specifically those particularly sensitive to rank and competition.
Keywords: Complex Trauma; Complex PTSD; Narrative Exposure The- rapy; Migrants; Torture.
