This chapter describes the difficulties of applying forgiveness therapy, let alone any psychotherapy, to those traumatized by the war in Bosnia. It also addresses the place of forgiveness, particularly forgiveness counseling, in the context of Necko's “different planet,” in a country struggling to recover from civil war, displacement, physical destruction, and genocide under the pretense of “ethnic cleansing.” It also considers both the philosophical debates and psychological research, as well as the real-life stories of Bosnian children and adolescents who have lived through this kind of war. It specifically employs the narrative perspectives on forgiveness and their well-developed strategies for coping during war to form the conclusions.

Keywords:   forgiveness, genocide, Bosnian youth, forgiveness therapy, psychotherapy, civil war, counseling, ethnic cleansing, Bosnia
