Torture Rehabilitation Bibliography - CVT PATH Q2 2014

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 Q2, 2014) contains: 

  • Selected Article Summaries:
    • "Noncommunicable diseases among refugees require more consideration, cost remains a barrier to healthcare access" (Amara and Aljunid)
    • "The Mechanisms of Psychosocial Injury following Human Rights Violations, Mass trauma, and Torture" (Nickerson et. al)
  • Selected Article Citations (organized by topic):
    • Trauma, Treatment, and Rehabilitation
    • Conflict and Post-Conflict
