Abstract:This multi-site study examined neurocognitive functioning in Bosnian and Slovenian secondary school teachers who survived the 1991–1995 civil conflict in the former Yugoslavia. Thirty-four teachers reporting low levels of posttraumatic stress reactions and 17 teachers reporting high levels of posttraumatic stress reactions were administered cognitive measures of attention and memory. Using partial correlations, subjects' scores on the Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Functioning (Randolph, 1998) were compared to posttraumatic stress reactions as measured by the Reaction Index-Revised (Pynoos, Rodriguez, Steinberg, & Frederick, 1999). Posttraumatic stress scores were inversely correlated with measures of immediate and delayed memory functioning when controlling for age and intellectual ability. These findings suggest that teachers who report lower levels of posttraumatic stress perform better on tests of memory functioning.
