Re-experiencing aspects of a trauma via recurrent and distressing imagery is a fundamental criterion of PTSD. Such imagery is also frequently utilised in PTSD treatment protocols based on exposure paradigms. Despite this, however, the phenomenology of re-experiencing symptoms, is not well understood. There is a paucity of descriptive literature and definitions of different types of intrusive imagery are unclear. This paper will review the literature with a view to clarifying current understanding of re-experiencing phenomenology The role of re-experiencing symptoms in cognitive processing models of PTSD will also be reviewed.
