Torture Rehabilitation Bibliography - Q1 2017

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, 2017) contains:

  • Selected Article Summaries:
    • High prevalence of secondary psychotic features in a heterogeneous refugee population in Denmark
    • Pre-migration trauma exposure and mental health functioning among Central American migrants arriving at the US border
    • PTSD symptom severity relates to cognitive and psycho-social dysfunctioning – A study with Congolese refugees in Uganda

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