Second-generation teenage victims of the Balkan Wars (1991-2002) are struggling with violence and substance abuse due in large part because their parents were never treated for war trauma, according to new research from the University of New Hampshire.

“The focus on unmet social/cultural and psychological needs of traumatized children and youth is important because not doing so could be costly to society in terms of later disorganization by this group as they mature. Substance abuse, dysfunctional families, and poor educational and employment records are likely to increase among this untreated population,” French says.

“Violated war victims represent a difficult class of traumatized people to treat effectively. Suicide is often the final solution to their suffering. The children of these victims are at high risk of suffering from secondary PTSD and consequently more prone to resorting to alcohol as the treatment of choice for their untreated problems,” he says.

This includes bosnian, talbanian and croat children as well, not just Serbian.

All because of their dreams of greater croatia, albania and bosnia "only for muslims"
