This study focused on perceptions about difficulties with acculturation for Bosnian refugees and their views on mental health counseling. It provides an overview of the Bosnian refugee dynamics in the United States of America and a description of the post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a condition faced by many refugees of war. Using a standard set of questions, two interviews were conducted with four school and mental health counselors to draw out emerging themes in counselor perceptions relating to the needs of this population. Implications and recommendations for mental health (community agencies) and school counselors are provided.
