Torture Rehabilitation Bibliography - Q1 2016

CVT's Partners in Trauma Healing (PATH) creates bibliographies every quarter. The PATH bibliography is a resource for current literature on the topic of the mental health status of and treatments for torture survivors, war trauma survivors, refugees, and asylum seekers. This also includes research in the areas of social work that relate directly to the psychological wellbeing of these populations. The bibliography includes peer reviewed journal article citations in these areas; select original summaries of those articles; and links to the publicly available abstracts and full text versions of these articles. This bibliography is updated and distributed on a quarterly basis. The bibliography does not currently include articles on policy and advocacy.

This bibliography (from Q1, 2016) contains: 

  • Selected Article Summaries:
    • "Factors associated with suicidal ideation among survivors of torture include history of sexual violence, female gender, and lack of social support"
    • "Exposure to genocide and the risk of schizophrenia: a population-based study"
    • "Insomnia in North Korean refugees: association with depression and post-traumatic stress symptoms"
  • Selected Article Citations (organized by topic):
    • Children/Youth
    • Mental Health
    • Trauma and Posttraumatic Stress
    • Women

Partners in Trauma Healing is made possible through the financial support of the United States Agency for International Development and the American peoples’ support.
