Abstract

In the face of mass human rights violations and constant threats to security, there is growing recognition of the resiliency of people and communities. This paper builds on such work by investigating the effects of individual coping strategies, perceived community cohesion, and their interaction on mental health symptoms in Colombia. With the aim of improving overall mental health for those living amid ongoing conflict, research is needed to identify "modifiable moderators", or factors that can be changed, addressed, enhanced, or tempered in interventions. Both individual factors, such as coping, and community factors, such as cohesion, will be examined in this chapter. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2020 APA, all rights reserved)
