SSW PhD alum Lisa Fedina, along with SSW faculty members Charlotte Bright and Melissa Edmondson Smith and co-authors Rebecca Campbell and Andre Rosay, had their article from Psychology of Violence selected as the American Psychological Association Journals Article Spotlight. What Is the Role of Economic Insecurity in Health? The Unequal Burden of Sexual Assault Among Women Female survivors of sexual violence are more likely than other women to experience psychological distress, depression, PTSD, and suicidal ideation as well as chronic health conditions and poor physical health following their experiences of sexual assault. However, the social, economic, and health burdens of sexual violence do not affect all women equally. An article in Psychology of Violence by Lisa Fedina, Charlotte Bright, Rebecca Campbell, Andre Rosay, and Melissa Edmondson Smith explored the salience of economic factors related to housing, food and nutrition, and health care in the physical and mental health of survivors of sexual assault.
