2nd Annual Celebrating Clinical Research Participants and Professionals at Providence Health Care

In recognition of Research Administrators Day 2019, we will take the opportunity to thank the hard-working clinical research professionals working at Providence Health Care and provide them with an occasion to discuss their profession. In addition, there cannot be research professionals without research participants and at this event we will both thank the participants and provide them with the opportunity to talk about their experience participating in research.

If you would like to attend, please RSVP by September 10 to communications@cheos.ubc.ca.

Exploring Paths to Healing with Formerly Incarcerated Men

Evidence indicates that a high prevalence of trauma experience among incarcerated populations, including substantial childhood adversity, with at least 50% reporting a history of childhood sexual, physical, and/or emotional abuse. Experiencing childhood trauma has been shown to alter brain development and impact the ability to establish supportive relationships and regulate emotions. The experience of incarceration itself is also emerging as a recognized form of trauma, with well documented impacts on physical and mental health. Supported by the Vancouver Foundation and the Health Canada-Substance Use and Addictions Program, a five-year project will engage formerly incarcerated men to identify opportunities to raise awareness about the links between trauma, resiliency, and health-related behaviour. Using a series of focus groups, interviews, and a photo-voice project, we seek to understand how to foster resiliency among men with a history of incarceration and work with key stakeholders to co-develop a trauma- and resilience-oriented health literacy resource for use in community and institutional settings.
