  • Hunger and torture.

    • Authors: Ergun Cakal
      Pages: 16 - 30
      Abstract: Background: Deprivation of prisoner food, in terms of its quality and quantity, has generally been accepted as violating the prohibition as torture and ill-treatment, particularly when combined with other factors (ie. harmful conditions and methods). Aspects relevant to assessing when and how food provision is considered inadequate, however, remain complex and confusing. This article presents a doctrinal review which consolidates normative understandings of adequate prisoner food. Method: A systematic full-text search was made of international and regional normative standards, case-law and commentary using the keywords. These were then selected based on their relevance for regulatory and explanatory specificity and pertinence to detention contexts. Findings: International and regional bodies directly connect the adequacy of food to respect for dignity, freedom from torture and ill-treatment as well as the right to health – and particularly as depending on duration, quality, quantity and variety. What constitutes inadequate food remains complex as it is contingent on both material and non-material considerations, including its quality (content, nutritiousness, edibility, variety, wholesomeness), its quantity (calorie, substantiveness, balance), its preparation (hygiene, respect to the individual and community), its provision and consumption (when, how and where it is to be eaten, regularity, accessibility, warmth/cold), its socio-cultural suitability (to religious and cultural values) and its developmental suitability (for pregnant or breast-feeding mothers and children).

  • Identifying resilience-promoting factors for refugee survivors of torture

    • Authors: Phyu Pannu, Keith Burt, Karen Fondacaro
      Pages: 31 - 48
      Abstract: Introduction: There are 1.3 million refugee survivors of torture currently living in the United States today. While a substantial body of research has been growing on refugee mental health, few studies have focused on refugee resilience. Objective: The current study focuses on a clinical sample of refugee survivors of torture to examine resilience-promoting factors, including community engagement, employment, English fluency, and psychological flexibility. Specifically, our study conducted moderation and mediation analyses to better understand how these resilience-promoting factors impact the torture-mental health relationship. Results: Findings showed that torture severity was significantly and positively associated with all mental health symptoms, and psychological flexibility was significantly and negatively associated with all mental health symptoms, including PTSD, depression, and anxiety. Psychological flexibility also emerged as a significant mediator of the torture-mental health relationship, such that individuals with a history of greater torture severity reported higher mental health symptoms via lower psychological flexibility. Additionally, English fluency and employment, but not community engagement, showed significant negative correlations with mental health symptoms. However, resilience-promoting factors did not interact with torture severity to predict mental health symptoms. Conclusion: The findings from this study identified variables that may have a meaningful impact on the mental health of refugee survivors of torture and provide insights and implications in treating this population from resilience-oriented clinical frameworks.

  • Asylum seeker trauma in a student-run clinic: reducing barriers to
           forensic medical evaluations

    • Authors: Aaron Gallagher, Gabriela Steiner, Martha Michel, Cesar Nava Gonzales, Sabrina Mendez-Contreras, Alice Lu, Marcos Armendariz, Triveni DeFries, Suzanne Barakat, Coleen Kivlahan
      Pages: 49 - 64
      Abstract: Introduction: The number of forcibly displaced immigrants entering the United States continues to rapidly increase. Movement from Latin America across the southern border of the United States was the third-largest migration worldwide in 2017; the U.S. now serves as home to one-fifth of the world’s migrants (Budiman, 2020; Leyva-Flores et al., 2019). Reporting on the first two years of clients receiving forensic medical evaluations (FMEs) conducted by clinicians trained at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), this descriptive study demonstrates the multiple layers and types of trauma in asylum seekers presenting to a student-run asylum clinic (SRAC) at an academic medical center.   Methods: A retrospective review of the first 102 asylum seekers presenting to a university-affiliated SRAC for forensic medical and psychological evaluations is summarized. Demographics, immigration history, medical and mental health histories, descriptions of extensive trauma and referral patterns are reported. Multivariate statistics were employed to investigate the relationship between past trauma and current mental health status.   Results: Clients reported extensive trauma histories, with an average of 4.4 different types of ill-treatment per person, including physical, psychological, and sexual violence. The current mental health burden was extensive with 86.9 percent of clients reporting symptoms of PTSD and/or depression. Clients were evaluated within a clinic structure that intentionally aligns with SAMHSA’s implementation domains of trauma-informed care using a continuous improvement model to reduce barriers to FMEs and promote longitudinal follow-up and referral access.   Discussion: This study demonstrates the profound trauma exposure reported by asylum seekers, as well as the adaptation of a SRAC to better respond to complex trauma through intentional structural and leadership decisions. The HRC experience provides a blueprint for other asylum clinics to implement systematic trauma-centered services.

  • Participation of psychologists in Istanbul Protocol based physical
           examinations: an applied perspective

    • Authors: Daniel Weishut
      Pages: 65 - 70
      Abstract: Being invited to do an evaluation of another asylum seeker, this time one from Turkey, a question kept coming to my mind. The question is as follows: Wouldn’t it be important for mental health professionals to take part in Istanbul Protocol (IP) based physical examinations' The intent is not to do the physical examination, but to be present, observe, ask questions when appropriate, and witness, with the consent of the client. The article elaborates on this question, while both sharing my perspective as a clinical psychologist and referring to relevant literature.

  • The manipulation of minds: reckoning with the legacy of the American post
           9/11 torture program

    • Authors: Maria Hartwig, Mark Fallon
      Pages: 71 - 83
      Abstract: In this article, we argue that the government’s post 9-11 torture program was a big lie, in that the designers, executors and enablers knew all along that torture does not elicit reliable information. We review the government’s own research on the matter, and we discuss the ways in which methods known to be unreliable were implemented, most saliently at the detention facility at Guantánamo Bay. We review the secrecy and propaganda surrounding the scope and horror of the torture program at Guantánamo and black sites around the world, and how the government knowingly adopted the terror policies of the torture program, against their own knowledge, against international human rights, and against the law.

  • Literacy limitations to psychological evaluation tools: The case of MU

    • Authors: Cynthia Luo, Claire Ufongene, Jennifer Weintraub
      Pages: 84 - 88
      Abstract: In this case, a survivor of torture presents
      with symptoms clinically consistent with
      both major depressive disorder (MDD)
      and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
      During her evaluation, a validated psychological
      questionnaire for PTSD was administered
      verbally through a translator and
      accurately identified this diagnosis. However,
      a self-administered (read and completed by
      the client) questionnaire for MDD vastly underestimated
      the severity of her symptoms
      and failed to diagnose her with depression.
      The client had not completed grade school,
      so it is likely that her literacy level impacted
      the accuracy of this questionnaire. This highlights
      one of the many limitations that exist
      when administering psychological surveys.
      Through understanding these limitations,
      forensic evaluators can develop ways to
      identify, mitigate, and overcome limitations
      of these useful tools.
