There are many pressures when resettling in a new country: the stress of immigration, the search for employment, getting recognition for training undertaken in another country, and dealing with a new language and culture. Inpsired by a 2005 study conducted by Dr. Cantor-Graae that found that immigrants have a 2-3 times higher chance than the average population of developing schizophrenia, Drs. Danni Li, Lisa Andermann, and Samuel Law at the University of Toronto conducted a study to look at the relationship between feelings of social defeat and types of delusions within schizophrenia. In this podcast, Drs. Andermann and Law share their findings and suggest possible approaches to working with immigrants with schizophrenia; they discuss implications for immigration policy and post-immigration social policies.
