asylum. These refugees are not often assimilated immediately into the society of refuge; therefore they must overcome social barriers in order to become successful in the current society of residence. Many also face psychological maladies such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD. In this study, the researchers aim to find a relationship between the presence of PTSD and those who do not feel as though they are healthy participants in their current society. (Methods) Using a Basic Demographic Scale and an Everyday Demographic Scale - both are standardized and evidence-based - the researchers will group each participant of the study into a variety of categories. The Basic Demographic Scale will help the researchers control for particular variables such as age, sex, and education level. Researchers will also have access to PTSD diagnosis among participants. (Results/Conclusion) The relationship between those who score low on a Perceived Discrimination Scale and those who are diagnosed with PTSD will support the need for evidencebased and competent “person-in-environment” treatment of refugees. Dissemination of the findings will help those who practice within mental health agencies allocate appropriate resources/counseling techniques to refugees.
