Sažetak
This study was designed to assess some psychological consequences of war imprisonment. The study comprised two hundred and twenty ex-prisoners of war (ex-POWs). Their average age was 34.8 years, and they had been imprisoned from one to 10 months. Scores on Digit Span, Word Fluency Test, Benton Visual Retention Test and Complex Reactionmeter Drenovac were compared with symptomclusters based on DSM IV diagnostic criteria for Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The obtained results show that 4.5% fulfilled criteria for full PTSD, while 28% were without any PTSD symptom cluster. The rest of the sample had some combinations of PTSD symptom clusters (Partial PTSD). Furthermore, age and the existence of any PTSD symptom cluster contributed significantly to the decreased test results of Digit Span, Benton test and Complex Reactionmeter, which indicates decreased speed and flexibility.
