Heather Littleton talks to PWQ Editor Jan Yoder about her article, co-authored with Amie E. Grills-Taquechel, Katherine S. Buck, Lindsey Rosman, and Julia C. Dodd, 'Health Risk Behavior and Sexual Assault Among Ethnically Diverse Women' which was published in the March 2013 issue of Psychology of Women Quarterly.



Sexual assault is associated with a number of health risk behaviors in women. It has been hypothesized that these risk behaviors, such as hazardous drinking, may represent women’s attempts to cope with psychological distress, such as symptoms of depression and anxiety. However, extant research has failed to evaluate these relationships among ethnic minority samples or identify the mechanisms responsible for this association. The current study examined sexual assault history and two health risk behaviors (hazardous drinking and engaging in sexual behavior to regulate negative affect) in a diverse sample of 1,620 college women. Depression and anxiety were examined as mediators of the relationship between sexual assault and health risk behaviors. There was evidence of moderated mediation, such that for European American women, but not for ethnic minority women, both forms of psychological distress were significant mediators of the sexual assault/hazardous drinking relationship. In contrast, among all ethnic groups, the relationship between sexual assault and both forms of psychological distress was mediated by the use of sexual behavior as an affect regulation strategy. Results support a need to evaluate the assault experiences of ethnically diverse women, as well as the impact of the assault on their postassault experiences including health risk behaviors and psychological adjustment. Additionally, results suggest that practitioners should carefully assess health risk behaviors among victims of sexual assault and be aware that there may be differences in the risk factors and motives for these behaviors among women of various ethnic backgrounds.

In this podcast, Professor Herrman, President-elect of the World Psychiatric Association describes her vision of international cooperation to identify, develop, and disseminate knowledge and resources appropriate for improving mental health among the diverse range of people and situations across the world. Professor Herrman is particularly optimistic about the interchange of ideas, acknowledging the growing importance of psychiatry as it is practiced outside western democracies, in places as diverse as the Pacific Island nations, China and India. Professor Herrman argues that psychiatry need not be defensive, but can be confident enough to assert its central role within medical practice. She makes the important point that advocacy by patients, carers, and broader social groups all have a part to play in guiding policy makers’ decisions about resource allocation, in Australia and New Zealand as well as the rest of the world.

Alongside the recent move towards dimensional diagnosis of psychiatric illness, there appears to be a tendency to dismiss Bipolar Affective Disorder – Type II as merely a less severe form of Type I. In the April 2015 podcast of Australasian Psychiatry, Scientia Professor Gordon Parker of the Black Dog Institute argues that bipolar I and II are categorically distinct entities which share hypomanic/manic symptoms but which can be differentiated by the presence of psychotic symptoms only in type I illness.

While every doctor is aware of the claims made for evidence based practice, the demands of clinical practice and the inertia of established routines often combine to resist change in psychiatric care.


Professor John McGrath of the Queensland Brain Institute, University of Queensland, recipient of one of two John Cade Fellowships last year, in conversation with Dr Andrew Amos, describes his vision for expanding the impact of psychiatric research in Queensland and Australia. Professor McGrath outlines collaborations with the Queensland Mental Health Research Alliance, the Early Psychosis Clinical Network, and others in Australia and around the world to identify modifiable risk factors for psychosis including perinatal vitamin D, trauma, cannabis, and paternal age.


Professor McGrath discusses the framework he and collaborators are creating for clinical trials in psychiatry and related research within Queensland, which will expose psychiatric doctors to real-world research from early in training and provide pathways to research involvement ranging from understanding the literature, through collection of data, to the beginnings of independent research
