Psychiatr Rehabil J 2018 Dec;41(4):258-265

The Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services.

Objective: This study aimed to improve our understanding of how to best assist marginalized youth during their transition to adulthood, and how to provide them services that help them achieve independence within existing public systems of care.

Psychiatr Rehabil J 2018 Dec;41(4):253-257

Subtle ways of stigmatization among professionals: The subjective experience of consumers and their family members.

Psychiatr Rehabil J 2018 Sep 9;41(3):163-168. Epub 2018 Jul 9.

Department of Community Mental Health.

Objective: Subtle expressions of stigmata or microaggressions consist of insensitive and demeaning remarks or statements which negate an individual's perception of their reality. They are differentiated from more traditional and overt forms of discrimination in that they are often voiced by well-intentioned individuals who are unaware of the negative underpinnings and potentially harmful effects of their comments.
