Trauma of War, Earthquakes and Pyrotechnics

Sounds, part three.

People experience a variety of sounds in their life, which can also leave deep psychological marks. This especially holds true for the sounds of war or earthquake. Sonic shock can develop into sonic trauma, requiring highly complex therapeutic treatment. In Zagreb, we discussed the sound consequences of the earthquake, and in Sarajevo reflected on the time of war. How do the bangs of firecrackers and other unexpected detonations affect us?

Guests: psychiatrist dr. Arijana Turčin, neurologist dr. Sandra Morović, Radio Slovenia sound engineer Vojko Frelih, Sarajevo musician Enes Zlatar, architect Lejla Odobašić Novo, occupational medicine specialist dr. Metoda Dodič Fikfak
