Neighborhood Disadvantage: Exploring Community-level Risk Factors for Sexual Violence

Robyn Ann Borgman

Georgia State University, United States of America

Sexual violence (SV) is a global public health issue; however, little is known regarding community-level risk factors for SV. During this paper discussion, researchers will explore how (US) community characteristics may serve as risk or protective factors for SV and the implications for prevention.

Sexual Violence in Conflict in National Counterterrorism Strategy

Rebecca Wilson, Sarah Cook

Georgia State University, United States of America

Sexual violence in conflict is not just a violation of human rights, it is also a security challenge. Inclusion of prevention programs that foster and protect women's rights into counterterrorism policy, may dualistically meet goals of reducing violence against women in conflict and ensuring national and international peace and security.

German adolescents were surveyed in 10 times between 1985 and 2017. As of 1999, Schwartz values were included.

2019 DENMARK/GUNVALD AWARD LECTURE: Whose Culture? Challenging the Idea of an Opposition Between the Right to Culture and Women’s Human Rights

Silvia Sara Canetto

Colorado State University, United States of America

In this lecture I challenge the idea that women’s human rights and cultural rights are in unique opposition, and that women’s human rights should be culturally-relativized. This idea sustains patriarchy’s interests (note that human-rights’universality is not questioned when men’s human rights are at stake), and undermines the human-rights-movement’s foundation.

Psychology Without A Weltanschauung? A Carriage Without A Locomoting Horse

Howard H. Covitz

Private Practics and Institute for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (retired), United States of America

A Metapsychology without a Weltanschauung, without a theory of the well individual and of the well polity, is deficient. Whether we are speaking of the Psychoanalytic theories of pathogenesis, DSM/ICD nosologies or evaluating the health of our elected leaders, Psychologies have been shy in expressing underlying values that buttress our theories.

10:00am - 10:55amPP-4: Paper Panel: Refugees and Migration
First Floor, Classroom 14 

Life-threatening Trauma Exposure and Daily Functionality Among Rohingya Refugees

Sanjida Khan, Shamsul Haque

Monash University Malaysia, Malaysia

One hundred Rohingya refugees, resettled in Bangladesh and Malaysia, reported that they were the victims of extreme brutality during and pre-migration; witnessed life-threatening events: killing, burning, abduction, torture and abuse. The level of PTSD and dysfunctionality among the refugees was predicted by the number of traumatic events they had experienced.

Direct and Indirect Trauma Exposure and PTSD among Rohingya Refugees

Sanjida Khan, Shamsul Haque

Monash University Malaysia, Malaysia

This study shows that number of traumatic events directly experienced by Rohingya refugees before and during migration predicted their intrusive and avoidance behaviour. Their indirect experience of adverse experiences before migration also predicted intrusion and hypersensitivity. However, the direct and indirect exposures together significantly predicted intrusion, avoidance and hypersensitivity.

"Well-Being In Aged Refugees"

Mostafa Mohammadi1, Hassan Fartousi2

1university of lausanne, Switzerland.; 2university of geneva, Switzerland.

Psychology and Migration: What We Know and What We Don't

Oliva Maria Espin

San Diego State University, United States of America

The complicity of psychology with xenophobic political ideologies, legislation, and discourses concerning immigrants and refugees. The worldwide immigration situation brings to the fore the inadequacy of the extant paradigms in psychology. Alternative forms of research and practice for a meaningful psychology of migration are needed. Proposed suggestions will be discussed.

Mercedes Osuna

Gender violence continues all over the world even Governments of lots of countries invest in strategies and measures to prevent violence against women. The basic reason is the kind of relationship among men and women provided that since we are born patriarchal roles are assigned different for girls and boys.
