War Traumas and Community Violence: Psychological, Behavioral, and Academic Outcomes among Khmer Refugee Adolescents.
Berthold, S. Megan
Journal of Multicultural Social Work, v8 n1-2 p15-46 2000
Interviews with 144 Khmer refugee adolescents found high levels of lifetime exposure to violence, symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) among one third of adolescents, and symptoms of depression among two thirds. Higher exposure to violence was related to PTSD symptoms, risk behaviors, and lower grade point average. Perceived social support predicted better outcomes. (Contains 96 references.) (Author/SV)
