    Exploring and Healing Invisible Wounds: Perceptions of Trauma-Specific Treatment from Incarcerated Men and Women

    Julia Gajewski-Nemes, Nena Messina

    Despite the alarming rates at which justice-involved individuals experience trauma, there is great hesitancy to discuss and address trauma in prison-based programs for fear of re-traumatization and decompensation. Recently, a series of studies assessed the efficacy of brief trauma-specific interventions for incarcerated men and women (Exploring Trauma and Healing Trauma, respectively). The quantitative results of these pilot studies showed positive and consistent improvement in anger, aggression, and psychological well-being across multiple facilities, varying levels of custody, and models of delivery. The current study adds to this literature by examining the corresponding qualitative data collected through participant focus groups and written feedback. Post-program feedback surveys for over 1,000 women and over 800 men and focus group summaries from 21 women and 23 men were compiled and analyzed using deductive thematic analysis. Participants’ feedback of the brief, trauma-specific interventions was overwhelmingly positive. They commented on the program’s structure, content, and overarching benefits. Underlying themes included appreciation for the facilitators, the safety of small groups, the ability to discuss trauma without judgment, skills to address and control anger, gaining self-respect and empathy, and healing relationships childhood wounds. Final comments included requests for more availability and more intensive trauma-based programs. The qualitative findings centralize the participants’ subjective experiences of the program, providing a more in-depth exploration into the pilot studies outcome results. The findings further suggest that justice-involved men and women with histories of trauma and abuse can heal in a custody setting if the program content addresses such histories with safety and appropriate program materials.

      Epidemiological, Demographic Risk Factors and Complications of Traumatic Humeral Fractures among Patients in Baghdad

      Saman Mohammad Abdul Razaq

      Humeral fractures are among the most common fractures in the elderly and in adults. This study aimed to assess the epidemiological; risk factors and complications of traumatic humeral fracture among studied sample. A cross-sectional study was conducted in the outpatient clinics of public hospitals for the period from March to May 2021. The sample size was 178 participants. The sample was randomly selected. As well as demographic information was recorded and compared with the records. Continuous variables were reported by mean ± standard deviation; chi-square test was used for Univariate analysis and manova, mvreg for multivariate analysis. Out of one hundred and seventy eight of participants’ with humeral fracture, the mean age was 49.2 with SD 1.21 years. 55.06% were male cases and 44.94% were female; 48.02% of them had a junior school; 38.98% had a history of smoking and 21.91% of them had a history of alcohol consumption. 45.51% of them had overweight BMI. There is significant association has been found between the smoking history and humeral fracture complication with p. value less than 0.05. Our results indicated that the patients with age over 41 years had greater risk of humeral fracture than other groups (odds ratio OR=1.57; 95% CI 0.971 to 5.919). Unemployed Patients had greater risk of humeral fracture than those who has a job (OR=10.9; 95% CI 5.047 to 13.661). There are signification association has been found between age, occupation, BMI, VD supplements and smoking history with gender at the p-value less than 0.05. We need further research on this field to detect the morbidity and mortality among cases with traumatic humeral fracture complications.
