Life-threatening Trauma Exposure and Daily Functionality Among Rohingya Refugees

Sanjida Khan, Shamsul Haque

Monash University Malaysia, Malaysia

One hundred Rohingya refugees, resettled in Bangladesh and Malaysia, reported that they were the victims of extreme brutality during and pre-migration; witnessed life-threatening events: killing, burning, abduction, torture and abuse. The level of PTSD and dysfunctionality among the refugees was predicted by the number of traumatic events they had experienced.

Direct and Indirect Trauma Exposure and PTSD among Rohingya Refugees

Sanjida Khan, Shamsul Haque

Monash University Malaysia, Malaysia

This study shows that number of traumatic events directly experienced by Rohingya refugees before and during migration predicted their intrusive and avoidance behaviour. Their indirect experience of adverse experiences before migration also predicted intrusion and hypersensitivity. However, the direct and indirect exposures together significantly predicted intrusion, avoidance and hypersensitivity.
