  • Introduction to special issue on promoting health and well-being in
           forcibly displaced asian populations.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This special issue of the Asian American Journal of Psychology aims to provide a better understanding of the factors impacting the health and well-being of forcibly displaced Asian populations. The psychosocial needs of these populations are considerable, and yet, they are understudied by psychologists. The eight papers in this collection focus on a range of issues, including the stressors associated with being a long-term refugee, suicide, protective factors, and challenges associated with providing psychosocial interventions to forcibly displaced Asian populations. We hope that this collection both draws further attention to the plight of these populations and spurs further research on their health and well-being.

  • Teacher perceptions of the barriers and facilitators of education amongst
           Chin refugees in Malaysia: A qualitative analysis.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The United Nations Refugee Agency currently has registered approximately 178,990 asylum seekers, and refugees within Malaysia (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Figures at a glance in Malaysia, 2020b). Interestingly, while Malaysia allows for the registration of asylum seekers and refugees, it is not a signatory to the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees. As a result, refugees in Malaysia are not considered conceptually different from illegal immigrants, and therefore have precarious lifestyles while they await resettlement to a third country. Importantly, refugee children are barred from accessing the local education system in Malaysia, despite documented evidence surrounding the importance of education in the promotion of well-being and successful resettlement in refugee children. These children often end up relying on various volunteer-run schools that have been set up across the country. In order to better understand the barriers and facilitators of refugee education, this study employed the use of semistructured interviews with 10 volunteer teachers who teach Chin refugee children in Malaysia. A qualitative analysis was conducted using a grounded theoretical framework. Five major themes emerged from the analysis of the data: Language, Resources, Cultural Differences, Legal Status, and Experiences of Prejudice. The findings from this study contribute to an important, and growing body of research that aims to understand both the barriers and facilitators of refugee education. It is hoped that these findings provide future educators with confidence and skills in the provision of effective education to their students from refugee backgrounds.

  • Stress, mental health, and self-care among refugee teachers in Malaysia.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The mental health of postconflict refugees stuck in limbo in neighboring countries, often hostile to refugees, is critically important, given the current refugee crisis. Currently, more than 70 million people have been displaced, with nearly 1 million forcibly displaced from Myanmar. This pair of studies sought to highlight the importance of a culturally sensitive assessment prior to the implementation of an intervention; they rely on an Ecological Developmental approach and mixed-method model to both examine and explore stress, mental health (i.e., depression and anxiety), and self-care among refugee teachers from Myanmar who are living in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. For Study 1, participants included 97 primarily Burmese refugee teachers and 26 nonrefugee teachers living in Malaysia. Study 1 used quantitative measures, was cross sectional, and data were collected in 2013, including Depression, Anxiety, and Stress Scales and a self-care questionnaire. Study 1 results suggested that refugee teachers reported significantly higher rates of mental health and stress, but lower rates of self-care, compared with nonrefugee teachers. In addition, higher rates of self-care were associated with lower rates of stress and mental health symptoms, and the association was moderated by age. For Study 2, in 2018, qualitative interviews explored conceptualizations of stress, mental health, and coping among refugee teachers who were from Myanmar (n = 11). Study 2’s qualitative results shed light on the unique definitions and experiences of stress, mental health, and self-care among refugee teachers in the context of macrolevel factors related to being a refugee in a country hostile to refugees. The discussion connects results to previous literature and addresses implications of this culturally sensitive assessment for future intervention development.

  • Planning for suicide prevention in Thai refugee camps: Using
           community-based system dynamics modeling.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Suicide and associated behaviors represent a significant health disparity among refugees and displaced persons. Despite this burden, evidence for prevention programing in these populations is limited. This study aimed to inform the selection and implementation of suicide prevention strategies in refugee camps in Northwestern, Thailand—camps that had experienced recent spikes in suicides and suicide attempts at the time of the study. We leveraged community-based system dynamics (CBSD) modeling through a series of four workshops with key local stakeholders and suicide prevention experts, to build a qualitative systems model that accounts for complexities and is aimed at assisting local partners with selecting the most promising strategies for implementation and evaluation. The process expanded local understanding of the causes and consequences of suicide and resulted in selection of priority interventions aimed at reducing suicide in this context. Our research illustrates the application of a novel methodology that aims to account for the complexities of suicide prevention in the context of displacement and helps to optimize local suicide prevention efforts.

  • A qualitative study of perceptions of risk and protective factors for
           suicide among Bhutanese refugees.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Over 100,000 ethnically Nepalese, “Lhotshampa,” people experienced systematic oppression, disenfranchisement, and violence during the latter part of the twentieth century. The Lhotshampa people were forced to flee their homes in southern Bhutan and enter refugee camps in Nepal for over 20 years. As of this writing, most Bhutanese refugees have been resettled in other countries (primarily the United States, Canada, and Australia). As the two remaining Nepalese refugee camps prepare to close, a growing suicide crisis is developing among many Bhutanese refugees. Bhutanese refugees resettled in the United States are dying by suicide at approximately twice the rate of the general U.S. population. It is crucial to examine, qualitatively, the nature of both risk and protective factors from the perspective of Bhutanese refugees, themselves. Our study included 15 Bhutanese refugees (8 men, 7 women) recruited from a community sample as part of a parent project examining culturally responsive suicide risk assessment. Mean age across both genders was 38.4 years (range of 22–55 years). Participants in our study were asked open-ended questions about suicide risk and prevention. We conducted a thematic analysis, synthesized risk and protective themes, and applied a socio-ecological framework to the data. We found risk themes included psychological distress and vulnerability, substance use, social and familial discord, interpersonal violence, isolation, and postmigration stressors. Protective themes included low levels of substance use, de-stigmatization of mental health concerns, strong social connections, reduced postmigration stressors, increased access to mental health care, and strong awareness within the host community of migration-related challenges.

  • Examining the functional utility of personal growth initiative in a
           war-affected Sri Lankan Tamil sample.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The present study explored personal growth initiative (PGI; Robitschek, 1998)—the extent a person is motivated to and actively sets goals toward achieving self-improvement—and its relationship to functional impairment and life satisfaction among a war-affected Sri Lankan Tamil sample. Two hundred war-affected Tamil individuals in Sri Lanka completed measures of PGI, wartime experiences, functional impairment, and life satisfaction. Two hierarchical regressions were conducted examining current life satisfaction and degree of functional impairment. After controlling for depression and wartime experiences, PGI was positively associated with life satisfaction. However, no association was observed between PGI and reduced functional impairment. In contrast to other contexts of ethnopolitical violence, PGI was associated with subjective well-being, but not improved functioning. These results have implications for potential utility of PGI across different contexts of ethnopolitical warfare. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2021 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Do no harm issues in psychosocial support: Post-tsunami practitioner
           learning in Sri Lanka.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The 2004 Asian tsunami had profound effects on diverse countries and increased global awareness of the need for mental health and psychosocial support amidst disasters. Although disaster response efforts are known to have some negative unintended consequences, these are seldom documented, particularly years following the humanitarian crisis. This practitioner learning study was a 5-year retrospective analysis of the psychosocial work done in Sri Lanka post-tsunami. It entailed open-ended interviews and group discussions with psychosocial workers from Galle, Colombo, and Batticaloa and humanitarians from other sectors whose work had a psychosocial impact. A key finding was that the posttsunami aid was highly discriminatory since aid was provided mainly to Tsunami-affected people. In the mostly Tamil area of Batticaloa, housing and other supports were provided to tsunami survivors but not to needy people in neighboring conflict-affected areas. Do No Harm issues also arose in regard to poor coordination, the monetization of aid, excessive targeting of aid, the imposition of Western modes of psychiatric and medicalized support, too little attention to capacity building and sustainability, and the marginalization of collective self-help and indigenous, cultural and social supports. The article offers suggestions on how to prevent such Do No Harm issues from occurring and to strenghthen future work in humanitarian settings.

  • Challenges to providing quality mental health services for forcibly
           displaced populations: The case of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The Rohingya refugee camps at Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh provide a unique opportunity to understand the provision of mental health services to a large, forcibly displaced population with limited resources. Providing quality mental health services to the Rohingya has been a challenge from the very beginning on their migration from Myanmar to Bangladesh in 2017. Currently, many of the quality concerns remain unchanged and are becoming more prominent as mental health needs are increasing and changing in nature. Based on direct observation, we present the current challenges with treating the Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, and propose a few possible solutions. Concerns include the lack of clinical skills, ethical competencies, linguistic and cultural competencies, clinical supervision, and self-care among the providers. To address these challenges, we suggest increasing access to resources for building linguistic and cultural competency, utilizing the technology platform for training, supervision and service delivery, providing training on evidence-based intervention models and ethical practice, introducing the peer supervision system, and increasing collaboration and coordination among the organizations.

  • Refugee mental health framework: A systematic tool and approach that
           optimizes outcomes.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This paper explores the development of a Refugee Mental Health Framework using lessons learned from the Sri Lankan Tamil immigrant and refugee community in Toronto, Canada, as a case study. Despite the existing body of research on refugee mental health, professionals look toward the mainstream conceptualization and application of psychological theories and practice, overlooking the mismatch between the perspectives of the East and West, when working with this population. This paper seeks to elaborate on how the authors, based on insights from research and practice, sought to address this gap through the creation of a relevant, culturally informed and consistent framework. This framework was further refined through consultations with diverse stakeholders including refugee communities, and an expert panel. The aim of this paper is to facilitate an understanding on how the framework can be used as a status map and/or a planning tool from the micro level of frontline service provision to the meso level of program design and planning to the macro level of national level policy. The strength of our framework in comparison to existing models and guidelines to working with war-affected populations, and its flexibility and adaptability to refugee communities in general, are discussed.
