Posttraumatic Symptomatology Among the Homeless Youth in San Bernardino County, CA

2014 APHA Research Poster: Trauma and Youth Homelessness

This is the research I will be presenting at the American Public Health Association (APHA) annual conference this week in New Orleans!

TL;DR: Presence of posttraumatic symptoms occur BEFORE the adoption of health-risk behaviors. Therefore, we posit that identifying and reducing the affect of posttraumatic symptoms may reduce the adoption of health-risk behaviors and reduce the likelihood of early death.
