thesisposted on 2022-03-29, 03:47 authored by Farah Deeba
According to theory and empirical research, traumatic experiences early in life can lead to greater impact on an individual than traumas occurring in adulthood. Traumatic events among young people are common with one in every four children living in a developing country being likely to experience a traumatic event by the time they are 18 years old. However, due to a variety of social, economic and environmental disadvantages, children from developing countries are at even greater risk of trauma exposure. The research in this thesis comprised samples of children and adolescents from Bangladesh, a developing world country that differs from the developed world not only on socio-economic grounds but also in cultural factors including language, traditions and religions.
