Psychological consequences of migration

The psychological consequences of migration do not only apply to migrants but also to family members staying in the sending context or members of the host population who work or are in contact with migrants. This is especially the case for migrants who have experienced traumatic events prior to or during their migration trajectory. The process of incorporation into a host society also entails a psychological dimension, often labelled acculturative stress.

Studies listed under this topic include literature on migrants and/or refugees and trauma, PTSD, psychological consequences of deportation and repatriation, psychological consequences of immigration policies, the mental health of professionals working with refugees, and the relationship between mental health and integration.

Dynamics of Mental Health of Migrants

Principal investigator Hannes Kröger (Principal Investigator), Ana Nanette Tibubos (Principal Investigator)
Description
Theoretische Modelle akkulturativen Stresses heben die große Bedeutung der Veränderung psychischer Gesundheit von Migrantinenn und Migranten über längere Zeiträume hinweg. Innerhalb des Migrationsregimes des Aufnahmelandes ist die Entwicklung der psychischen Gesundheit dabei durch Stressoren und Resilienzfaktoren beeinflusst. Persönlichkeitsmerkmale und Familienbeziehungen und -struktur sind zwei wichtige Determinanten psychischer Gesundheit, die bisher nicht in einer längsschnittlichen, auf Veränderung fokussierten Analyse untersucht wurden. Das DMHM-Projekt zielt darauf ab diese Lücke in der Forschungsliteratur zu schließen.

Innovative Wearable and Open Platform for a Personalized Treatment of Stress

Description
The XANA project aims at developing a user-friendly wearable device and ICT solution for the customized treatment of stress. We will provide an innovative and non-invasive technology of stimulation of the vagus nerve and a range of integrated services such as feedback on performance, monitoring and access to professional counselling when needed. Stress is suffered by over 26% of working population. The European Commission estimated in 2002 the cost of work-related stress at €20 billion a year just in the EU-15. Of this, direct costs are mostly paid by the public healthcare systems, and indirect costs are related to productivity loss, ultimately impacting national economies. Current alternatives do not fully solve the challenge of stress treatment, because of their limited efficacy and presence of secondary effects (invasive electrical stimulation or pharmacological treatment). Moreover, the treatment results are very variable, time consuming (psychological techniques) and expensive. XANA main benefits are: avoidance of secondary effects, high efficacy, user-friendliness, fast and customized treatment providing actual physiological activity. XANA will contribute to the development of mobile Health in Europe. In this, the ICT characteristics of the product are key to possibly enabling burden-reduction in healthcare systems through real-time treatment optimisation and remote medical monitoring/counselling. XANA project is led by the Spanish start-up Walden Medical®. XANA has a clear potential for becoming an international benchmark in the field of mental health. We have estimated that after 5 years from launch, we will build around 69.700 devices (sales €28M), hire 12 technical employees and manage 0.1% of the world market. We will earn around €10M profit and generate a R.O.I of 6.90. Investment in the XANA product will furthermore ease commercialization of Walden Medical® technologies for other high prevalence conditions: anxiety and migraine.

Migration and Mental Health in Germany - A Representative Study on Risks and Helpful Factors

Principal investigator Jutta Lindert (Principal Investigator)
Description
A representative cross-sectional study in five German cities aims to examine mental health and risk and protective factors of different groups of migrants. The focus of the preliminary studies will be on the feasibility and practicability of the planned investigation. This might alert the research team to problems in collecting representative data on immigrants' mental health. The team will adapt and fine-tune the methods, especially the sampling method, if necessary. Additionally, the researchers will validate the instruments, the questions for the guided interviews and for the in-depth interviews, in accordance with an emic understanding of topics, concepts and language use.

Work stress, well-being, and intention to leave the profession: comparison between European and Chinese nurses

Description
The nurse shortage is an international issue. In USA more than one million new nurses will be needed by the year 2010; and most European countries are in need for large quantity of nurses, too. However, the nurse shortage happens not only in developed countries, but also in developing countries, such as in China. According to the World Health Report 2006 – WHO, the density of nurses per 1000 in China was only 1.06 (ranking 133 out of 191 countries) while the average was 4.06 in the world. In addition, the international East-West migration of nurses makes the situation worse in the less developed and developing countries. On the other hand, the premature departure increases the loss of nursing staff. What makes the nurses want to leave their profession? The EU-funded NEXT (nurses' early exit) -Study is investigating the reasons, circumstances and consequences surrounding premature departure from the nursing profession, which has been conducted in 11 European countries in recent years. The findings indicate that stressful psychosocial work characteristics and health reasons are the main causes of premature departure in nurses. Since 2006, a research team from China has collaborated with the European NEXT-Study group to examine the association among work stress, well-being, and intention to leave the profession in Chinese nurses. It is of interest to apply the well-established theories and knowledge from Europe into China in the research field of nursing science, occupational health psychology, medical sociology, and epidemiology. This proposed research is the NEXT follow up project to compare the data between European and Chinese nurses. The comparison would be helpful for the exploring the divergence and concordance of professional withdrawal behaviour in different populations, and would also lead to policy implications of intervention and would improve the development of nursing workforce both in Europe and China.
