Abstract

Abstract:

The current study examined the relationship between experiential avoidance and psychological distress after war-related traumatic experiences among 152 Kosovar civilian war survivors. Results showed significant correlations between experiential avoidance and psychological distress. Participants who scored high on experiential avoidance reported more impaired psychological functioning and lower subjective quality of life than those who scored low on experiential avoidance. Results of this study indicate that experiential avoidance may be a significant factor in understanding war-related psychological distress.
