The winners of the calls for projects

Lucia Gentile is the winner of our 2022 post-doctoral project call.

Her project, entitled "Psychotrauma and resilience in newcomer women from South Asia faced with obstetrical violence: intersectional analysis of the care relationship in the Ile-de-France region", opens up new multidisciplinary perspectives on the links between psychotrauma, migration and health via ethnographic surveys in maternity hospitals and PMI in the Ile-de-France region. It is supervised by Professor Marie-Caroline Saglio-Yatzimirski (CESSMA UMR 245 -University of Paris, IRD, Inalco) and Priscille Sauvegrain (MCF, Inserm Equipe EPOPé, UMR 1153).

We also support the completion of Laura Charretier 's doctoral dissertation project entitled "Memory and Self-Consciousness in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder".

This project, conducted within the framework of the 13-November Program and supervised by Professor Francis Eustache (INSERM-EPHE-UNICAEN-U1077 NIMH Unit) and Peggy Quinette (MCF, INSERM-EPHE-UNICAEN-U1077 NIMH Unit), pursues a double objective with a clinical purpose. The aim is not only to explore and characterize three sub-components of self-consciousness, namely projective self-consciousness, bodily self-consciousness and social self-consciousness, but also to develop an information and therapeutic exercise booklet for people exposed to a traumatic event.

Assessing the impact of midlife on the mental health of university students. A Cn2r and FHF research innovation fund study:

COVID-19 has forced several countries to impose a nationwide quarantine. Without questioning the value of such a measure, the literature on the impact of quarantines on the population indicates negative effects on mental health, including post-traumatic stress symptoms. Initial findings related to the impact of the COVID-19 quarantine in China confirm this finding and show high prevalences of stress and depression. Being a student is one of the factors associated with a greater psychological impact.

In this context, the CN2R, in collaboration with the FHF Research Innovation Fund, has launched a study whose main objective is to study the mental health of the population of university students in France by looking at the prevalence of: (i) post-traumatic stress disorder in midlife, and (ii) anxiety, depression, perceived stress, insomnia, and suicidal ideation in and after midlife. A questionnaire including socio-demographic data and assessing these different aspects as well as various considerations related to the event itself was proposed to the whole community.
