  • Changes in society and young people's mental health1. [Journal Article]
    Int Rev Psychiatry. 2020 Apr 29 [Online ahead of print]Bolton D, Bhugra D
  • It is well recognized that many psychiatric disorders are strongly influenced by cultural and social factors. Foucault's account of the modern development links together 'madness', psychiatry and the asylum. We pick up the story at the point Foucault left it, the mid-twentieth century, to examine cultural and social processes that are reshaping concepts, discourse and practices - the 'social imag…
  • Marketization and anti-immigrant attitudes in cross-national perspective. [Journal Article]
    Soc Sci Res. 2019 11; 84:102326.Hövermann A, Messner SF
  • This study builds upon an evolving research agenda by assessing the utility of three predictors of anti-immigrant attitudes: a "marketized mentality," its aggregated level analogue - a "marketized anomic culture," and an institutional imbalance characterized by the dominance of the economy over other social institutions. Drawing upon Institutional Anomie Theory (IAT), a macro-sociological theory …
  • Sites of Exception: Gender Violence, Digital Activism, and Nirbhaya's Zone of Anomie in India. [Journal Article]
    Violence Against Women. 2019 Aug 04 [Online ahead of print]Dey A
  • Gender violence in India exists as a state of exception for the ways in which it occupies a nonlegal, liminal space of existence as "bare life" or "life itself." The rape and murder of Jyoti Singh Pandey unprecedentedly brought this to the surface. This article aims to highlight the ways in which the movement that emerged out of this case engaged with gender violence as a state of exception while…
  • Marriage Aspiration, Perceived Marriage Squeeze, and Anomie Among Unmarried Rural Male Migrant Workers in China. [Journal Article]
    Am J Mens Health. 2019 May-Jun; 13(3):1557988319856170.Li W, Li S, Feldman MW
  • Using data from a survey of rural-urban migrants conducted in Xiamen City, China, during 2009, this study explores determinants of anomie among unmarried rural male migrant workers in the context of China's gender imbalance. Results indicate that the perceived marriage squeeze has exerted direct effects on anomie, and marriage aspiration has indirect effects on anomie among rural male migrant wor…
  • The social disorganization of eating: a neglected determinant of the Australian epidemic of overweight/obesity. [Journal Article]
    BMC Public Health. 2019 Jun 03; 19(Suppl 2):454.Bittman M, Cleary E, … Gershuny J
  • CONCLUSIONS: Contemporary urban Australians are spending less time in organized shared meals. These changes have occurred the over same period during which there has been a public health concern about the prevalence of unhealthy weight. Preliminary indications are that societies that emphasize eating as a commensal, shared activity through maintaining definite, generous lunch breaks and prioritizing eating at mealtimes, achieve better public health outcomes. This has implications for a strategy of health promotion, but to be sure of this we need to study countries with these more socially organized eating patterns.
  • Neighborhood health, social structure and family violence. [Journal Article]
    Soc Sci Res. 2019 07; 81:12-22.Stansfield R, Doherty E
  • Within a large field of family violence research, a slowly growing body of literature has examined community-level variables to explain variation in violence. Studies investigating the role of ecological factors have largely been informed by social disorganization theory. This represents considerable progress, but the community context also includes many ecological factors yet to be considered by…
  • Legal cynicism: Independent construct or downstream manifestation of antisocial constructs? New evidence. [Journal Article]
    Int J Law Psychiatry. 2019 May - Jun; 64:211-218.Ameri T, Burgason KA, … Vaughn MG
  • Researchers have found that legal cynicism is a significant predictor of crime. Although legal cynicism developed as a form of anomie, it is also plausible that legal cynicism is itself a deviant rationalization to justify one's criminal behavior. As such, legal cynicism might be a derivative manifestation of other individual-level constructs that bear on criminal propensity. We test this possibi…
  • Immigration, social trust, and the moderating role of value contexts. [Journal Article]
    Soc Sci Res. 2019 03; 79:115-126.Ziller C, Wright M, Hewstone M
  • This study examines whether the values prevalent in one's social environment moderate the link between immigration-related ethnic diversity and social trust. Drawing on arguments related to intergroup relations and anomie, we expect that contexts characterized by a comparatively high degree of openness mitigate a trust-eroding effect of immigration. In contrast, we expect that contexts of low ope…
  • Belief in conspiracy theories and intentions to engage in everyday crime. [Journal Article]
    Br J Soc Psychol. 2019 Jul; 58(3):534-549.Jolley D, Douglas KM, … Schrader T
  • Belief in conspiracy theories is associated with negative outcomes such as political disengagement, prejudice, and environmental inaction. The current studies - one cross-sectional (N = 253) and one experimental (N = 120) - tested the hypothesis that belief in conspiracy theories would increase intentions to engage in everyday crime. Study 1 demonstrated that belief in conspiracy theories predict…
  • Outlet Type, Access to Alcohol, and Violent Crime. [Journal Article]
    Alcohol Clin Exp Res. 2018 11; 42(11):2234-2245.Trangenstein PJ, Curriero FC, … Jernigan DH
  • CONCLUSIONS: Access to outlets that allow for off-site consumption had a greater association with violent crime than outlets that only permit on-site consumption. The lack of effective measures to keep order in and around off-premise outlets could attract or multiply violent crime.
  • Disorganized and unresolved states in adulthood. [Review]
    Curr Opin Psychol. 2019 02; 25:172-176.Jacobvitz D, Reisz S
  • Fear plays a central role in attachment theory and disorganization in adulthood. Fear associated with traumatic memories interferes with resolution of trauma resulting in disorganized mental states, captured as unresolved/disorganized speech surrounding loss and/or abuse in the Adult Attachment Interview. Mothers who are unresolved experience fear stemming from traumatic memories and display frig…
  • Postincident Interpersonal Difficulty Among Adolescent Victims of Violent Crime. [Journal Article]
    J Interpers Violence. 2018 Jul 01 [Online ahead of print]Phillips JB
  • Adolescents are exposed to high levels of violence in the United States. Exposure to violence at this point in the life course can have both short- and long-term consequences for young victims that include socioemotional distress and depression, substance abuse, and delinquency. Prior research indicates that positive, productive, and supportive reactions on the parts of those close to targets of …
  • Who are the European youths willing to engage in radicalisation? A multidisciplinary review of their psychological and social profiles. [Review]
    Eur Psychiatry. 2018 08; 52:1-14.Campelo N, Oppetit A, … Bronsard G
  • CONCLUSIONS: There are many similarities between psychopathological manifestations of adolescence and mechanisms at stake during the radicalisation process. As a consequence, and despite the rarity of psychotic disorders, mental health professionals have a role to play in the treatment and understanding of radical engagement among European youth. Studies with empirical data are limited, and more research should be promoted (in particular in females and in non-Muslim communities) to better understand the phenomenon and to propose recommendations for prevention and treatment.
  • Ecological Networks and Neighborhood Social Organization. [Journal Article]
    AJS. 2017 May; 122(6):1939-1988.Browning CR, Calder CA, … Dirlam J
  • Drawing on the social disorganization tradition and the social ecological perspective of Jane Jacobs, the authors hypothesize that neighborhoods composed of residents who intersect in space more frequently as a result of routine activities will exhibit higher levels of collective efficacy, intergenerational closure, and social network interaction and exchange. They develop this approach employing…
  • Are Competitive Materialism and Female Employment Related to International Homicide Rate? [Journal Article]
    J Interpers Violence. 2017 Apr 01 [Online ahead of print]Chon DS
  • The institutional anomie theory is a proposal that states competitive materialism, an intense cultural pressure for economic success at any costs, and increased female employment may be related to a high homicide rate. The current work tested this proposition by utilizing homicide data collected from 45 developed and developing countries. Regression results did not support the proposition. Compet…
