Abstract

The impact of detention on psychological status, and quality of life was examined in a sample of 150 former refugee detainees from the Woomera Detention Centre now living in the Australian community. Detainees completed a psychological status inventory including the Truncated Assessment of Self-Destructive Thoughts (TASDT), the Quality of Life Inventory, the Suicidal Ideation Scale, and the Profile of Mood States. Former detainees reported their current status and retrospectively reported their status while detained.
