  • Centering mental health in society: A human rights approach to well-being
           for all.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Applying a human rights lens to mental health and well-being will improve the systems that govern and operate U.S. society. Achieving this requires learning from successful approaches and scaling up the implementation of effective strategies that promote equity by actively addressing determinants and barriers across systems that impede overall health. As a country, the U.S. has shown significant success in innovation but has failed at taking successful programs and initiatives to scale. Having endured over a year of loss in education, social connection, and routines, the COVID-19 pandemic illuminated America’s deeply rooted structural inequities that have worsened population mental health and well-being. Integrating mental health into institutions and systems, while recovering and rebuilding, must be at the forefront to provide a path for transformation. Three recommendations are derived from the strategies and initiatives described throughout this article that offer tangible steps for achieving wellbeing as a human right: 1. Embed mental health within and across all systems, and expand its definition across the continuum; 2. Prioritize prevention and health promotion through person-centered and community-driven strategies; and 3. Expand the diversification and training of the mental health workforce across sectors. The inequities addressed in this article are not the products of a global pandemic. Instead, they result from historical oppression, injustice, and inaction, exacerbated by the current context. Embedding a human rights approach to mental health in the United States is fundamental to individual and community well-being. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2022 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Intersected discrimination through the lens of COVID-19: The case example
           of Christian minority in Iraq.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Compelling evidence proved that coronavirus disease (COVID-19) disproportionately affects minorities. The goal of the present study was to explore the effects of intersected discrimination and discrimination types on COVID-19, mental health, and cognition. A sample of 542 Iraqis, 55.7% females, age ranged from 18 to 73, with (M = 31.16, SD = 9.77). 48.7% were Muslims, and 51.3% were Christians (N = 278). We used measures for COVID-19 stressors, executive functions, intersected discrimination (gender discrimination, social groups-based discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination, and genocidal discrimination), posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, status and death, existential anxieties, and health. We conducted independent samples t test between Muslims and Christians. We conducted hierarchical regression analyses using the Christian minority subsample to see if intersected discrimination is predictive of COVID-19 hospitalization. We conducted two-path analyses, one with intersected discrimination as an independent variable and the second with the different discrimination types as independent variables. Intersected discrimination predicted COVID-19 hospitalization. The primary discrimination type for Christians was genocidal discrimination. Christians had higher existential anxiety about status and death than Muslims. Intersected discrimination and discrimination types had a significant association with mental health, health, and cognition variables, with intersected discrimination, had a higher impact than each. Existential anxiety about the person’s social and economic status was the critical outcome of intersected discrimination that trickles down to other variables. COVID-19 stressors had significant effects on depression, PTSD, generalized anxiety, and Status existential annihilation anxiety (EAA). COVID-19 hospitalization and stressors are associated with inhibition and working memory deficits. We discussed the conceptual and clinical implications of the results.

  • Social support and networks among people experiencing chronic
           homelessness: A systematic review.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The objectives of this systematic review were to synthesize available information on social support and social networks among individuals experiencing chronic homelessness, examine the measurement of social support, the impact of social support on outcomes, and the impact of interventions on social support. The authors searched Academic Search Complete, PsycArticles, Pubmed, PsycINFO, ScienceDirect, Cinahl, and ProQuest for English-language empirical articles published between 1998 and 2019. Studies were included if they sampled single and unaccompanied adults experiencing chronic homelessness and examined the impact of social support and/or social networks. The search yielded 29 studies. Results were synthesized according to research questions and patterns of findings that emerged from included studies. Wide variability in the measurement of social support was found across studies. Nearly all studies found changes in social support associated with housing interventions. A substantial evidence base indicated intervention effects on social support are largely positive. Review findings suggest individuals with substance use disorders may require additional social functioning support once housed. Indigenous people may require tailored interventions to center their cultural values and facilitate existing community strengths. Overall, the results from this review suggest social support plays a key role in the housing experiences and outcomes of individuals experiencing chronic homelessness. Future studies should include qualitative and mixed methods work as these methods revealed important insights about social support. More evidence is needed to inform the development of specific interventions targeting social support to facilitate community integration of formerly homeless individuals.

  • Trends and disparities in unmet treatment needs for co-occurring
           depression and alcohol use disorders among young adults in the U.S.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Major depressive episode (MDE) and alcohol use disorder (AUD) often co-occur and the presence of one doubles the risk for the other, which brings disabling social and health consequences. Increasing evidence supports integrated treatment of co-occurring MDE and AUD, including combined medications for both conditions as well as behavioral therapies. While young adults suffer disproportionately from these co-occurring conditions, little is known about their treatment utilization. Using nationally representative data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), 2011–2019, this study examined temporal trends and disparities in the prevalence and treatment use for co-occurring MDE and AUD among young adults aged 18–25 in the U.S. Across the survey time, an increasing trend of MDE was revealed, whereas the prevalence of AUD decreased significantly. Meanwhile, the prevalence of co-occurring MDE and AUD remained steady. Among young adults with co-occurring MDE and AUD, while treatment use for MDE increased from 2011 to 2019, treatment use for AUD and co-occurring conditions remained stable. Observed widening disparities in co-occurring treatments utilized among young adults ages 18–25 are further perpetuated by gender, emerging adulthood, and socioeconomic status, warranting immediate action.

  • Microskills of broaching and bridging in cross-cultural psychotherapy:
           Locating therapy skills in the epistemic domain toward fostering epistemic
           justice.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Psychotherapy research has shown evidence of positive impacts of broaching cultural differences on the therapy process and outcomes. This increasing body of research also highlights a need to clarify clinical skills of broaching and subsequent bridging to guide therapists in cross-cultural psychotherapy. In articulating microskills to promote broaching and bridging, we critically reflect on cautions against slipping into a technocratic approach that is a mechanical prescriptive skill-based guideline. Using critical theory on epistemic injustice, we examine how to integrate cultural aspects into therapy conversations that are aligned with epistemic and social justice. Drawing from sociolinguistic and critical scholars on language and power, we interrogate epistemic domains of knowledge and power during broaching and bridging in everyday clinical talks. We focus on theorizing and illustrating “how-to-do” broaching and bridging to guide therapists in everyday cross-cultural encounters with selected microskills such as a therapist’s self-disclosure, cultural immediacy, and reflective listening. Using case illustrations with detailed transcripts for each skill, we interrogate how a client’s epistemic status can be managed in the moment-to-moment conversation between a client and therapist in the continuum from dismissing to deepening the client’s experience. A series of detailed case illustrations are intended to guide therapists’ self-reflection and/or train therapists toward meaningful cross-cultural work. Lastly, we discuss the implications of broaching and bridging while situating this work as promoting epistemic justice in cross-cultural therapy encounters.

  • Developing a model of broaching and bridging in cross-cultural
           psychotherapy: Toward fostering epistemic and social justice.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Epistemic and social injustice occurs when therapists implicitly and explicitly impose personal, professional, and institutional power onto clients, and dismiss client experience which is embedded in cultural identity and social location. Despite research evidence highlighting the positive impact of broaching in cross-cultural psychotherapy, questioning the rationale and barriers to broaching is paramount. Drawing from scholarship on epistemic in/justice, we argue that the very existence of marginalization of a client in the life and in the therapy exemplifies epistemic injustice. Epistemic injustice bears two types—testimonial and hermeneutic injustice. When clients’ experience of marginalization is decentered or discredited, testimonial injustice occurs. By not providing clients with opportunities to share this experience in therapy, there is little shared understanding cultivated in the cross-cultural dyad, contributing to hermeneutic injustice. Thus, epistemic in/justice requires broaching not as an option but as an integral part of therapy. Synthesizing scholarship in cultural competence, humility, intersectionality, and antioppressive practice, we define broaching as the therapist’s tasks for intentional understanding of the cultural aspects and systemic oppression in the client’s life-in-context. A therapist who is broaching is aware of cross-cultural similarities and differences and the workings of power in the therapy dyad and makes deliberate efforts to demonstrate this understanding to the client which includes explicit discussion in sessions. We propose pathways, dimensions, foci, and timing of ongoing broaching and bridging cross-cultural encounters in therapy. Lastly, we discuss the implications of broaching and bridging while situating this work as promoting epistemic and social justice in therapy encounters.

  • The experiences of older youth in and aged out of foster care during the
           COVID-19 pandemic: Material and financial well-being by foster care
           status, gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity, and race.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: As a marginalized, underresourced population, older youth with foster care experience are acutely vulnerable to the economic and social harms wrought by coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). This study summarizes findings from an online survey deployed in April 2020 to learn about the experiences of current and former foster youth (ages 18–23) during 1 month of the COVID-19 crisis. Using snowball sampling and a cross-sectional design, the survey yielded a final analysis sample of 281 respondents from 32 states and 192 cities or districts. Findings underscore the pervasive negative impacts of COVID-19 on respondents’ housing/living situations, food security, employment, and financial stability. Chi-square tests and post hoc analyses revealed demographic disparities in respondents’ experiences during COVID-19. Youth who aged out of care, cisgender females, nonstraight youth, and non-White youth were significantly more likely than demographic counterparts to experience pandemic-related adversities. Implications for policy and practice are discussed. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2022 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Out-of-home placement, sleep problems, and later mental health and crime:
           A prospective investigation.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Previous research suggests that out-of-home placement experiences increase the risk for mental health problems and criminal involvement. However, few studies have examined the mechanisms whereby out-of-home placement increases the risk for these outcomes. The present study examines whether sleep problems in part explain the relationship between childhood placement experiences and depression and anxiety and criminal arrests in adulthood. Data are from a prospective longitudinal study of 531 children with documented cases of childhood maltreatment (14% with no out-of-home placement, 68% placed solely for abuse and/or neglect, and 18% placed for maltreatment and delinquency) who were followed up into adulthood. Cases are from 1967 to 1971 from a metropolitan county in the Midwest. Sleep problems were assessed in young adulthood (Mage = 29 years). Depression and anxiety symptoms and arrest records were assessed in middle adulthood (Mage = 40 years). Structural equation modeling was used to test hypotheses. Both types of out-of-home placement experiences (for maltreatment only and for maltreatment and delinquency) predicted more sleep problems in adulthood across all models. Sleep problems in young adulthood predicted higher levels of anxiety and depression in middle adulthood, but not criminal arrests. Sleep problems mediated the relationship between placement only and internalizing symptoms and results differed for male, female, White, and Black individuals examined separately. Using court-substantiated cases of childhood abuse and neglect, this study demonstrates the long-term negative consequences of out-of-home placement experiences for sleep problems and anxiety and depression in adulthood. More attention is needed to insure adequate sleep for maltreated children. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2022 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Generativity among people with lived experience of mental illness and
           distress.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Generativity refers to the contributions that people make toward the betterment of others, communities, and future generations. Engaging in generativity may add purpose and meaning to one’s life, elements which people with mental illness often feel is relevant for their recovery. Despite its importance, what is known about how people with mental health problems engage in generativity, and the relationship between generativity and recovery is unclear. Addressing this knowledge gap may inform recovery-oriented interventions; and may help shift stigmatizing views that people with mental illnesses are a burden on society. This study explored generativity and its relationship to recovery among people with mental illnesses. The objectives were evaluated using a mixed methods sequential explanatory design over two phases. During the quantitative phase, participants completed questionnaires measuring generativity, recovery, and distress. During the qualitative phase, participants interpreted and elaborated upon the quantitative results. Phase one participants endorsed many items reflecting generativity. Generativity was correlated with overall recovery scores, as well as with domains reflecting no domination by symptoms (r = .32), a willingness to ask for help (r = .46), and personal confidence and hope (r = .48). Phase two participants discussed how the quantitative results resonated with their own experiences; their own generative behaviors, which included ephemeral and concrete forms of generativity; and how engaging in generativity improved their recovery. People with lived experience of mental illness make important contributions to the lives of other people and their communities; and these contributions can support recovery.

  • Adverse childhood experiences, sexual victimization, and suicide ideation
           and attempts: A longitudinal path analysis spanning 22 years.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Suicide is an urgent public health problem. The purpose of this study was to determine if adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) increased the risk for suicide ideations and attempts approximately 22 years later, and if sexual victimization (SV) in adulthood mediated these associations. Prospective data from a nationally representative sample of 10,914 participants in the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health were used to test direct associations of ACEs (physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, neglect, family history of suicide attempts, and parental death, alcoholism, and incarceration) with suicide ideation and attempts and their indirect effects through sexual victimization in adulthood. All but one ACE significantly predicted increased odds of making a suicide attempt. Physical, sexual, and emotional abuse as well as family history of suicide attempts and parental incarceration predicted seriously considering suicide. All forms of childhood abuse and family history of suicide attempts predicted increased odds of sexual victimization. In multivariate longitudinal models controlling for age, race, and gender, the odds of seriously considering suicide and making a suicide attempt increased as the number of ACEs increased. Experiencing two or more ACEs also was associated with an increased likelihood of experiencing sexual victimization in adulthood, which in turn mediated the effects of ACEs on suicide ideation but not suicide attempts. Findings indicate that reducing ACEs is an important strategy for suicide prevention not only due to ACEs’ direct association with suicide ideation and attempts, but also due to their indirect association via subsequent sexual victimization.

      Abstract: The present work sought to examine the relationship between stress of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) disease, psychological trauma, and burnout, and whether subjective well-being (SWB), sense of coherence (SOC), and posttraumatic growth (PTG) mediated the relationship between the three constructs in a group of professional healthcare workers engaged on the frontline during the outbreak in Palestine. Results indicated that SWB, SOC, and PTG mediated the association between the stress of COVID, symptoms of trauma, and burnout. The psychological burdens of the ongoing military occupation have been exacerbated by the COVID outbreak, exposing health workers to additional stressors during their work and everyday life. However, a SOC associated with SWB and PTG might be a protective factor for trauma during the pandemic. Implications for health-care providers empowerment are discussed.
