My past research has been on the intersectionality of oppression and 1) identity issues related to the older population and 2) identity issues among the diaspora population from the Horn of Africa. Continuing my interests in ethnoracial minority older adults, I have been working on abuse among older immigrant adults and developed an intervention model using restorative justice mediation. I continue to work on Wellness Recovery Action Plan with older adults in which I use strengths-based critical social work and a mental health recovery approach. Currently I examine intersectionality of oppression and social justice beyond human animals in the hope of developing the area of social work and animals from an animal rights perspective.

Highlighting the role of resilience, leadership, and capacity-building among immigrant seniors in addressing elder abuse within immigrant communities

    Summary:

    Elder abuse and neglect has been identified as a key concern that significantly affects the quality of life and the full contributions of older persons to society. While interest in addressing elder abuse has increased, considerable gaps remain in the social sciences literature. One main gap is the limited research about elder abuse and neglect within immigrant communities. A second main gap is related to the portrayal of older adults as vulnerable and lacking agency; few studies have focused on leadership, resilience, and capacity-building activities among specific organizations and among older individuals themselves. In this project, we will host a series of planned knowledge mobilization activities focusing on leadership development, capacity-building, and resilience among older immigrants in an effort to address elder abuse.

Partnering to promote health care equity for ethnic minority older adults

    Summary:

    Recent immigrant older adults and some visible minorities who have aged here experience health inequities in Canada. These are primarily related to difficulties with the complex process of accessing suitable care. However, Canadian research on the topic is extremely fragmented and hard to find and knowledge users charged with designing policy and programs do not have the evidence they need to help them to address access barriers experienced by ethnic minority older adults. Effort is needed to consolidate existing evidence and design research that fills knowledge gaps with respect to access so as to generate a decision-making tool that can guide knowledge users in their decisions across different health and social care contexts. This project intends to address this gap.

Animal assisted interventions in the Nova Scotia health service sector

    Summary:

    This study investigates current practice of animal-assisted interventions (AAI) in the province of Nova Scotia from the perspective of practitioners in the five health care professions, including occupational, recreational, and behavioural therapists, psychologists, and social workers. The purposes of this study are: 1) to gain a better understanding of how AAI are conducted in the province, the types of health concerns addressed, and the relationship between AAI services and other health services; 2) to develop a conceptual framework for best practices of AAI within the context of NS and 3) to bring curricular change initiatives using the research findings. We proposed to achieve the purposes through conducting constructivist grounded theory based in-depth interviews with practitioners and through advisory workshops.

Gender and Reconstruction in Eritrea

    Description:

    This study examines gender relations in a new state, Eritrea, that gained independence from Ethiopia after three decades of war. The nationalist Eritrean People's Liberation Front (EPLF) expressed commitment to women's emancipation and other progressive ideas during the struggle for independence; the study examined the situation of women after independence when the EPLF formed the government. Research involved collecting stories from ex-female fighters, female students, civilians, and officials. The study is in the final stage, in which a book manuscript is being revised.

My past research has been on the intersectionality of oppression and 1) identity issues related to the older population and 2) identity issues among the diaspora population from the Horn of Africa. Continuing my interests in ethnoracial minority older adults, I have been working on abuse among older immigrant adults and developed an intervention model using restorative justice mediation. I continue to work on Wellness Recovery Action Plan with older adults in which I use strengths-based critical social work and a mental health recovery approach. Currently I examine intersectionality of oppression and social justice beyond human animals in the hope of developing the area of social work and animals from an animal rights perspective.

Highlighting the role of resilience, leadership, and capacity-building among immigrant seniors in addressing elder abuse within immigrant communities

    Summary:

    Elder abuse and neglect has been identified as a key concern that significantly affects the quality of life and the full contributions of older persons to society. While interest in addressing elder abuse has increased, considerable gaps remain in the social sciences literature. One main gap is the limited research about elder abuse and neglect within immigrant communities. A second main gap is related to the portrayal of older adults as vulnerable and lacking agency; few studies have focused on leadership, resilience, and capacity-building activities among specific organizations and among older individuals themselves. In this project, we will host a series of planned knowledge mobilization activities focusing on leadership development, capacity-building, and resilience among older immigrants in an effort to address elder abuse.

    Summary:

    This study investigates current practice of animal-assisted interventions (AAI) in the province of Nova Scotia from the perspective of practitioners in the five health care professions, including occupational, recreational, and behavioural therapists, psychologists, and social workers. The purposes of this study are: 1) to gain a better understanding of how AAI are conducted in the province, the types of health concerns addressed, and the relationship between AAI services and other health services; 2) to develop a conceptual framework for best practices of AAI within the context of NS and 3) to bring curricular change initiatives using the research findings. We proposed to achieve the purposes through conducting constructivist grounded theory based in-depth interviews with practitioners and through advisory workshops.
