Sick or sad? supporting Palestinian children living in conditions of chronic political violence

Journal article citation:
Children and Society, 28(3), 2014, pp.172-181.

In this article the authors reflect on the relatively recent emphasis on Palestinian children's mental health and well-being in the context of exposure to chronic warlike conditions, as they position this trend within the larger framework of the generations-long history of political turmoil and suffering. The authors describe how a process that started with no attention to psychosocial health of children in relation to exposure to dispossession, expulsion, occupation, repression and military attacks, proceeded with a focus on presumed mental disorders, and the more recent approach of designing context appropriate and community-based psychosocial interventions.

Cross-national comparison of Middle Eastern university students: help seeking behaviours, attitudes towards helping professionals and cultural beliefs about mental health problems

AL-KRENAWI Alean., et al
Journal article citation:
Community Mental Health Journal, 45(1), February 2009, pp.26-36.

This study is the first to use identical data collection processes and instruments in Egypt, Kuwait, Palestine, and Israeli Arab communities regarding help-seeking behaviours and attitudes towards perceived cultural beliefs about mental health problems. Data is based on a survey sample of 716, undergraduate students in the 4 countries, 61% female and 39% male. Results indicate that respondents within the various countries, based on nationality, gender and level of education, vary in terms of recognition of personal need, beliefs about mental health problems (i.e. stigmatisation), and the use of traditional healing methods versus modern approaches to psychiatric therapy. The conclusion discusses differences between the respondents’ expectations and prevailing mental health service provision and delivery.
