Professor Ora Nakash Publishes Mental Health and Palestinian Citizens in Israel
Mental Health and Palestinian Citizens in Israel, written by Professor and Chair of the HBSE Sequence Ora Nakash, M.A., Ph.D., is available now. The book offers research and observation on three central topics: socio-cultural determinants of mental health, mental health needs, and mental health service utilization. From suicidal behaviors and addiction to generational trauma and the particular concerns of children and the elderly, this broad and careful collection of research opens new dialogues on treatment, prevention, and methods for providing the best possible care to those in need.
When commenting on her research Nakash said, "We find that socially advantaged clinicians have more misdiagonsis with minority clients compared to socially advantaged clients."
Mental Health and Palestinian Citizens in Israel is available for purchase through Indiana University Press.
