Emotions, perceived threat, prejudice, and attitudes towards helping Ukrainian, Syrian, and Somali asylum seekers

Europe receives thousands of asylum seekers. This study examined whether European participants distinguish between European, Middle Eastern, and African asylum seekers in relation to positive and negative emotions, perceived threat, prejudice, and attitudes towards helping. The study also examined how these variables interrelate to influence each other. 287 participants were recruited from the UK and Malta.


Exploring how youth with refugee backgrounds navigate moral challenges associated with the refugee experience : A qualitative study.

Youth with refugee backgrounds are often required to navigate moral challenges and dilemmas associated with the refugee experience. However, little research to date has explored the experiences of how youth navigate moral challenges associated with the refugee experience from their perspective. Thus, this study interviewed 10 youth with refugee backgrounds (six female and four male), mean aged 21.20 years (SD = 2.92, range 17–25 years), and explored how morals have a role in the challenges experienced by refugee youth, and the impacts of these challenges.

Factors associated with exposure to potentially morally injurious events (PMIEs) and moral injury in a clinical sample of veterans

Introduction: Moral injury is not inevitable following exposure to a potentially morally injurious event (PMIE). Since moral injury is associated with poor mental health outcomes, it is clinically important to understand when moral injury develops following PMIE exposure and when it does not.

Moral injury in women military members and Veterans : What do we really know?

Moral injury describes and explains the biological, psychological, sociological, and spiritual wounds service members may develop when they are betrayed by leadership or act, fail to act, or bear witness to acts that are in direct conflict with their moral code. Very little research is focused on moral injury experienced by women service members and Veterans. A woman’s experience in the military is often vastly different from a man’s because they have a higher prevalence of military sexual trauma (the threat or experience of sexual assault or harassment).

Reducing intrusive memories after trauma via an imagery-competing task intervention in COVID-19 intensive care staff : a randomised controlled trial

Intrusive memories (IMs) after traumatic events can be distressing and disrupt mental health and functioning. We evaluated the impact of a brief remotely-delivered digital imagery-competing task intervention on the number of IMs for intensive care unit (ICU) staff who faced repeated trauma exposure during the COVID-19 pandemic using a two-arm, parallel-group, single-blind randomised controlled trial, with the comparator arm receiving delayed access to active treatment (crossover).

Telepsychiatry versus face-to-face treatment : systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials

The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed healthcare significantly and telepsychiatry is now the primary means of treatment in some countries.


To compare the efficacy of telepsychiatry and face-to-face treatment.


A narrative systematic review of changes in mental health symptoms from before to during the COVID-19 pandemic

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic raised concerns regarding population-wide impacts on mental health. Existing work on the psychological impacts of disaster has identified the potential for multiple response trajectories, with resilience as likely as the development of chronic psychopathology. Early reviews of mental health during the pandemic suggested elevated prevalence rates of multiple forms of psychopathology, but were limited by largely cross-sectional approaches.
