Projektinhalt

Hintergrund
Der Bürgerkrieg im ehemaligen Jugoslawien ist mit großer Grausamkeit geführt worden; die Menschen waren wiederholt potentiell traumatisierenden Erlebnissen ausgesetzt, ein Großteil ist zur Flucht gezwungen worden.

Ziele
Das Projekt will zwei Fragestellungen beantworten; es untersucht erstens das Inanspruchnahmeverhalten von in Belgrad (Serbien-Montenegro), Dresden (Deutschland), London (Großbritannien) und Zagreb (Kroatien) lebenden kriegstraumatisierten Personen und fragt nach möglichen Barrieren in die Behandlung, und evaluiert zweitens die existierenden Behandlungen in Behandlungszentren in Belgrad (Serbien-Montenegro), Rijeka (Kroatien), Sarajevo (Bosnien-Herzegowina) und Zagreb (Kroatien).

Methode
Die Datenerhebung erfolgt mittels Interview, bestehend aus standardisierten Fragebogen (CAPS, BSI, IES-R, MANSA) sowie offenen Fragen.
