Disarrangement: Dominant symptom of traumatized people in Serbia
University of Belgrade, Faculty of Philosophy
Keywords: psychopathology; disarrangement; traumatised people; Serbia
Abstract
The psychopathological status of 175 subjects from Belgrade and wider surroundings was examined. Out of them, 70 subjects had somatic trauma (26 war traumas and 44 somatic peacetime traumas); 45 subjects had mental trauma, and 60 had no trauma. The following instruments were used: PTSD-Scale, Brief Eysenck's Personality Inventory, General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-60) and Late Effect of Accidental Injury (LEAIQ), as well as appropriate statistical procedures (ANOVA, discriminative analysis, linear correlation). In qualitative terms, the majority of symptoms were conversive, the first of which was disarrangement. In quantitative terms, the symptoms of general neuroticism were most frequent in the subgroup of subjects with somatic war traumas, then in the subgroup with mental traumas in peacetime, and finally in the subgroup of subjects with somatic peacetime traumas. In the subgroup of mentally traumatised subjects, the PTSD symptoms were most frequent.
