Description

The WAVE Trauma Centre, with financial assistance provided by the Northern Ireland Community Relations Council, commissioned a study and documentary in order to gain a better understanding of the lived experiences of those injured as a result of the Troubles in Northern Ireland.

Here, those affected relate the physical and psychological injuries they have suffered and explain how their lives were irrevocably altered by those experiences. In particular, the documentary examines:

  • The needs of individuals who were injured in the Troubles and those of their families, particularly their carers who are usually family members;
  • The difficulty of defining injury. A working definition of ‘Life threatening or disfiguring physical injury’ was adopted as the primary inclusion criteria for participants in the study;
  • Psychological injuries were also included, but only when suffered by those meeting the primary inclusion criteria above.
