Undersøger hyppigheden af og hvad der forudsiger Akut Stress Forstyrrelse (ASD) og fandt, at hyppigheden af ASD (14,5%) var den samme som ved andre former for interpersonelle overgreb. Der viste sig, at graden af oplevet hjælpeløshed og oplevet trussel på livet (under bankrøveriet), samt graden af oplevet sikkerhed efter bankrøveriet,spillede ind på sværhedsgraden af ASD symptomer. Der peges på,at”oplevet sikkerhed” muligvis er et af kerne elementerne og et fællestræk ved PTSD og ASD.
