Brief Summary in Scientific Language

After a pilot study, this research project intends to evaluate the meaning of religiousness and spirituality (abbr.: ReS) in experiencing and dealing with their illness of the populations in Croatia and Bosnia-Hercegovina, frequently traumatized by war. After the 1990's wars in Ex-Yugoslavia, children, adolescents, adults of all ages suffer from effects of the war. The consequences of war trauma have an impact on all aspects of life and considerably reduce their participation in social life. The related psychic disorders, esp. PTSD, also influence the life of family members, the family dynamics and the family system in general, including future generations.
In cooperation with university clinics and other clinics for psychiatry and psychotherapy in Croatia and Bosnia-Hercegovina, the projects investigates PTSD, other posttraumatic disorders and other psychiatric disorders in relation to ReS. Patients (m/f) are asked to complete a questionnaire on the role of ReS in their life in general and in the context of their illness in particular, which frequently is chronified. Attention will also be paid to the different (religious) cultures in Croatia and Bosnia-Hercegovina.
