Dr. Bibi Nomo Neumann presents incisive study on psychological issues faced by Cameroonian refugees

As a child, Dr. Bibi Nomo Neumann was instilled with the values of public service, gender equality and humanitarian concern. She was inspired by her own mother’s hard work to build Cameroon’s first infrastructure that would serve to collect blood from all citizens and test for HIV/AIDS while creating the country’s first national blood banking system.

Neumann has embarked on her own humanitarian efforts, one of which is her move to address disparities in the mental health field, particularly with regards to refugee healthcare and acculturation needs. She discusses this topic in detail in her new book titled “Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: The Basics in Cameroonian Refugees” (published by Xlibris).

Neumann’s work is a review of the literature on the psychological issues faced by refugees to the United States and on empirically supported treatments with potential implication for Cameroonian refugees with post traumatic stress disorder. It is written especially for clinicians working in the increasingly racially and culturally diverse arena of behavioral healthcare in the United States.

“Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: The Basics in Cameroonian Refugees” aims to present an original contribution to studies on “Cameroonians as refugees” populations. The author hopes that her book promotes cultural competency in clinical practice within behavioral health.
