Clinical Issues in Mental Health Service Delivery to Refugees.
Gong-Guy, Elizabeth; And Others
American Psychologist, v46 n6 p642-48 Jun 1991
Serious limitations exist in the delivery of mental health services to refugees throughout the resettlement process: fragmentation, instability, language barriers, culturally inappropriate treatment methods, and severe staff shortages. Suggested improvements for refugee mental health services emphasize outreach, prevention, treatment approaches, and recognizing potential problems using interpreters and paraprofessionals. (CJS)
