2021 Project Proposal

Mental Health in Refugee Populations

Sue Trumbetta (Psychological Science), Maria Höhn (History), and Adam Brown (New School, Clinical Psychology)

Project Type - A - Remote-only:  Student participants will not live on campus.

As part of a multi-year project with the Consortium on Forced Migration, Displacement, and Education’s (CFMDE), two Vassar URSI students will conduct empirical research on mental health among forcibly displaced populations.  Students will work with Professor Adam Brown and his graduate students in the Trauma and Global Mental Health Lab at the New School for Social Research (New York City) during the first part of the summer (4-6 weeks).  This work will introduce students to some of the databases and data analytic techniques necessary to their URSI research.

Prerequisites: PSYC 200 or other Statistics course strongly preferred.  Command of a language other than English strongly preferred.

How should students express interest in this project?  Professors Trumbetta and Höhn will contact students for interviews; students will also interview with Professor Brown.

This is an 8-week project running from June 15 – Aug 7 (1 week later start and end than other projects)
