Chapter
At the end of 2016, there were a record-high 65.6 million people forcibly displaced according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Figures at a glance 2017 [Internet], 2018). With 300,000 new people displaced in 2016, there were 20 people newly displaced every minute of 2016. Most refu...
Book
Nearly 70 million people today are refugees or forcibly-displaced migrants. More than half of them are children suffering from the effects of dislocation and violence. This book provides a framework to guide mental health providers who work with refugees and immigrants. The authors describe the unique needs and challenges of serving these populati...

The process of resettlement in a new country and culture is commonly one of intense stress. Somali immigrants and refugees living in North America represent a large ethnocultural group navigating the complexities of forced displacement and resettlement. Despite the immense resilience exhibited by Somali communities in resettlement, the behavioral h...
Article
Full-text available
Research indicates that refugee and immigrant youth commonly face four core stressors during resettlement in a new country and culture: trauma, acculturative stress, resettlement stress, and isolation. This Four Core Stressors framework can be used to educate providers about these populations’ unique needs and support assessment of relevant socioec...
Article
Acculturation styles have important associations with future adjustment among immigrants and refugees, yet less is known about the individual and interpersonal factors that influence the strategy an individual adopts. High rates of discrimination may signal the receiving community’s rejection of one’s ethnic group, increasing pressure to assimilate...
Article
In this study we examine how grievances and social connection among Somali immigrants are associated with attitudes towards radicalization to violence. Data was drawn from structured interviews with 213 Somali young adult men living in North America. Structural Equation Modeling was used to test the association of grievances with attitudes in suppo...
Article
Full-text available
Addressing and integrating social and cultural identities (e.g., ADDRESSING categories) into treatment improves the quality of treatment, especially for individuals of historically marginalized groups. The process of not just aspiring for, but actually enacting culturally-responsive care, is complex, often emotionally activating for both providers...
Article
Full-text available
Childhood family adversity predicts adult interpersonal behavior and physiological responses to interpersonal stress. Additionally, negative marital behaviors (e.g., hostility and distress maintaining attributions) predict maladaptive stress responses and mental health problems, whereas positive marital behaviors (e.g., acceptance and relationship...
Article
Objective: Despite a greater need for mental health treatment in individuals identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, and other sexual minority identities (LGBQ+), no prior study has examined mental health treatment outcomes for LGBQ+ populations receiving standard care. We compared individuals identifying as LGBQ+ or heterosexual on treatmen...
Article
Full-text available
Moral transmission is the concept that moral behaviors can be contagious, spreading from person to person like a pathogen of social influence. We investigated how cognitive fusion—a transdiagnostic vulnerability to diverse mental health problems—influences moral transmission across 3 studies (N = 891) using real behavioral outcomes, including econo...
Article
Full-text available
The contextual amplification hypothesis posits that girls’ early pubertal timing will predict anxiety and depression symptoms most strongly when early puberty occurs under adverse conditions. Research supporting this hypothesis has consistently linked early pubertal timing occurring in adverse contexts to symptoms during adolescence, but little is...
Article
Full-text available
The current study examined relational aggression as a potential mechanism that explains the association between off-time pubertal development and internalizing problems in youth. Youth gender was also examined as a moderator for the association between these variables. It was hypothesized that early pubertal maturation would be associated with high...
Article
Full-text available
Acts of violence by youth in the United States have prompted mental health professionals to become increasingly attuned to the potential for violence among their clients, particularly adolescents at risk of such behavior. The counseling relationship offers adolescents a space in which they can share their thoughts about and intentions for violence,...
Article
Full-text available
While off-time pubertal development has emerged as a potential risk factor for both symptoms of depression and anxiety in youth, the literature is mixed and inconsistent as to (1) how early versus late pubertal timing confers risk for both boys and girls, (2) if the conferred risk is distinct between symptoms of anxiety and depression, and (3) unde...
Article
Full-text available
Objective: Citicoline is an endogenous nucleotide that has historically been used to treat stroke, traumatic brain injury, and cognitive dysfunction. Research has also shown that citicoline treatment is associated with improved cognitive performance in substance-abusing populations. We hypothesized that marijuana (MJ) smokers who received citicoli...
Article
Limited previous data suggest that heterogeneity exists in the treatment approaches for women with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). We sought in a longitudinal cohort study of women with DCIS to assess the attitudes and management approaches toward DCIS among physicians who provide care to women. Eligible physicians were invited to participate in a...
