My war has not been finished yet

Dr. Miodrag Milovanovic

There was a civil war in my country 1991 - 1995. After the war, unfulfilled expectations, together with the economical crisis, were an increasing number of war veterans  were asking for help. During the war and about 5 years after the war, the number of people with PTSD was not so large. About 10 years after the end of the war, the number of people suffereing from PTSD started to increase. At 10 -15 years after the war, we had the largest number people asking for help. Comorbidity of the PTSD and the different abuses (mostly alcohol), depression, anxiety, panic atacs, as well as somatic disorders (cardiovascular disorders, ICV, cancers, diabetes mellitus and the other psychosomatic diseasses) is very often nowdays. I accepted this multidiscipline type of treatment: after interview and demarking a problem, I used BKT and Gestalt Therapy as well as Yoga therapy approaches. I also used psychopharmacotherapy. About 15 years after the war we had the largest number of  people suffering from PTSD in my country. In most cases the simptoms of PTSD were combined with other psychological and psychosomatic disorders and/or abuses. The most common combination was PTSD and depression. The number of suicide depended of the number of new stressors.The work with the dreams can help people suffering of PTSD and enduring personality change - in overcoming the problem and in re-aranging their life style
