The multiple roles of the school as a protective factor for children in post-war communities in Croatia

Jana Dusper

The aim of this study was to explore the role of the school as a factor of providing support and building resilience in children and their parents living in a post-war community in Croatia. This is a community of displaced persons, refugees and returnees, burdened with unresolved ethnic tensions, and extremely disadvantaged economically. Children in this community demonstrate a range of developmental difficulties (emotional and cognitive) and maladaptive behaviors (acting out, scholastic failure). Parents, themselves burdened with the difficult circumstances, are not able to respond adequately to the needs of their children. State services have as of yet been unable to provide sufficient resources for the reconstruction of this community. The school has been hypothesized to be a prominent factor of resilience in the area.

Recorded: October 2009, Dubrovnik - Cavtat, Croatia.

Organiser: The Brisbane Institute of Strengths Based Practice
