Abstracts
The aim of this study was to determine the different levels of depression, hopelessness and post-traumatic stress disorder between two groups of adolescents, those who returned to Baranja and those from Osijek. The first group consisted of 57 adolescents (32 female and 25 male) with the mean age of 17.36, who were grammar school students in Beli
Manastir (Gimnazija, Beli Manastir). The mean duration of displacement period was 7 years. The second group consisted of 58 adolescents of grammar school students in Osijek (III. gimnazija, Osijek) (32 female and 26 male) with the mean age of 17.28. All examinees filled in the Croatian version of the Children’s Depression Inventory (CDI), the Hopelessness Scale for Children (HSC) and Children’s Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Inventory. The analysis of the results did not show any statistically significant difference between these two groups regarding levels of depression, hopelessness and post-traumatic stress disorder. The results point out rather good psychosocial adjustment of adolescents upon their return home after 4 years.
