Objectives:

  1. Understand psychophysiological effects from sustained stressor exposures.
  2. Understand the impact of the post-stressor environment on long-term psychiatric and somatic health.
  3. Develop skills to assess refugees and other stressor prone persons incorporating both trauma and environmental exposures.
