The Editors of Psychiatric Rehabilitation Journal are soliciting papers for a special issue devoted to self-stigma and mental illness.
High-quality research is sought on topics including
- models/theories of the development, maintenance, and amelioration of self-stigma;
- validation of new and existing measures of self-stigma with a variety of populations;
- data-driven inquiry into the differentiation between and relationships among self-stigma and related constructs such as self-efficacy, anticipated stigma, negative symptoms, etc.;
- development, pilot or feasibility testing, effectiveness and efficacy evaluation, adaptation, and implementation and dissemination of strategies or programs designed to prevent, reduce, or eliminate self-stigma.
A variety of methodologies are welcomed including studies using qualitative methods, first-person accounts, experimental and quasi-experimental designs, economic analyses, and research evaluating the associations between self-stigma and domains of daily life, functioning, and community integration (e.g., wellness, employment, quality of life, role fulfillment).
Guest Editors Alicia Lucksted, PhD (Associate Professor of Psychiatry, University of Maryland Medical School) and Amy Drapalski, PhD (VA VISN-5 Mental Illness Research Education and Clinical Center) will oversee this special issue/section.
