Harvard Program in Refugee Trauma

Harvard Program in Refugee Trauma

The Harvard Program in Refugee Trauma (HPRT), originally founded at the Harvard School of Public Health, is a multi-disciplinary program that has been pioneering the health and mental health care of traumatized refugees and civilians in areas of conflict/post-conflict and natural disasters for over two decades. Its clinical program serves as a global model that has been replicated worldwide. HPRT designed and implemented the first curriculum for the mental health training of primary care practitioners in settings of human conflict, post-conflict, and natural disasters. Its training activities have been successfully conducted in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Cambodia, Croatia, Japan, and the United States. HPRT’s landmark scientific studies have demonstrated the medical and mental health impact of mass violence as well as the cultural effectiveness of its clinical treatment and training programs. Working closely with Ministries of Health throughout the world, HPRT has developed community-based mental health services primarily in existing local primary health care systems. It has also successfully established linkages to major foreign university settings. HPRT’s bicultural partnerships with international collaborators have resulted in culturally effective and sustainable programs that rely primarily on local human resources and indigenous healing systems. In order to achieve its mission, memorandums of agreements have been signed between HPRT and universities in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Italy, Japan, and Thailand. As a university-wide program, HPRT has access to the full resources and talents of Harvard University, including the Medical School (HMS), the School of Public Health, the School of Education, and the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). HPRT is currently administered by MGH, one of America’s oldest and most prestigious hospitals, which is a major teaching hospital of HMS.

Implicit Association Test (Project Implicit)

project implcitProject Implicit is a group of assessments in which a person is given choices to compare from about a person’s race, sex, identity, religious or other possible biases.  This social psychology assessment basically tries to combine a mental strength of a person’s thoughts with pictures they may see of a person who may fit that profile in order to establish how much of a bias exists.  For instance; with the sex test, you would be expected to see pictures of females and males, for race, one race versus another or more.

While taking this group of implicit association tests–you can take 15 different ones at the beginning–you may feel that your bias is not “correct.”  That is okay!  Please remember that this is just a tool to use to see what kind of possible biases you may have.  If anything else, it is a nice assessment just to try to see what comes up when you try it and find.

SciLife

SciLife provides a map of the scientific landscape enabling the research
community to connect and to profit of interdisciplinarity in an easy way.

In close cooperation with Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden we developed this platform. And here it is: SciLife – made by scientists for the scientific
community. Made for you!

So what can you do on SciLife?

Based on the functionalities of a highly specialized social networking site,
researchers can present their work, groups and resources to potential partners
in science and industry, and benefit from extensive communication tools like
messaging, discussion groups, blogs and forums. The high level of categorization
and standardization achieved through the new keyword approach makes SciLife a
highly effective search and browsing tool for all scientific purposes.

Face Research

Face Research

Rate attractiveness (facial, voice, different ages, etc.) and other qualities alongside questionnaires about your hormonal cycles, tastes and attitudes in Flash-based tests designed by psychologists at the University of Aberdeen. In some you are shown a pair of faces and asked to choose your preference (of whatever quality is being tested) and in others you rate images on a 1-10 scale. When complete you’re told what research it’s based on and how your result compares to others. (A Dr. Grohol Pick)

Human Research Subjects Training

The Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) allows researchers to take these courses:

Basic Courses in the Protection of Human Research Subjects.
Biomedical Focus
Social and Behavioral Focus.
Refresher Courses
Good Clinical Practice Course.
Health Information Privacy and Security Course (HIPS)
Laboratory Animal Welfare Courses for investigators and IACUC Members
Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR).

By also allowing a researcher to become a better researcher, CITI also helps the researcher to keep up-to-date on IRB processes.
