The prevalence rate of tsunami-related posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) (ignoring the time criterion) ranged between 14% and 39% and an additional 5% to 8% had PTSD unrelated to the tsunami. The PTSD symptoms were explained by the severity of the trauma exposure and family loss, as well as previous traumatic events. The results confirm the relevance of the individual history of traumatic events for the genesis of PTSD and indicate a high need of mental health assistance among the tsunami-affected children in Sri Lanka.</dcterms:abstract> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dc:contributor>Neuner, Frank</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Catani, Claudia</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-25T09:27:41Z</dc:date> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/11330/1/Neuner_etal_JTS2006_Tsunami.pdf"/> <dc:creator>Ruf, Martina</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Elbert, Thomas</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Neuner, Frank</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/2.0/"/> <dcterms:issued>2006</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Ruf, Martina</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Post-tsunami Stress: A Study of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder in Children Living in Three Severely Affected Regions in Sri Lanka</dcterms:title> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-25T09:27:41Z</dcterms:available> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/11330/1/Neuner_etal_JTS2006_Tsunami.pdf"/> <dc:contributor>Schauer, Elisabeth</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:rights>Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 Generic</dc:rights> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Journal of traumatic stress 19 (2006), 3, pp. 339-347</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
