Scenes in Fort Worth

Description: This silent film is a compilation of a number of different scenes and appears to be news footage from an unknown news agency. In the first scene a man interviews a family in their kitchen, a small child eats while seated on the counter, and a group of young people are gathered next to what appears to be a police car or ambulance. In the second scene, men and women dressed in western or cowboy attire eat breakfast at an unknown event in Fort Worth. The story includes a close up of bacon frying, an unidentified man on horseback, a man in a police uniform being led into a jail in what appears to be a joke, a parade of men on horseback with a sign for Seymour's White Front Store in the background, and a close up of a man drinking a cup of coffee. In the third scene, the Moslah Shrine Chanters are seen at a train station and boarding a train. In the fourth, a man demonstrates the use of a piece of equipment for another man which appears to be a FCDA CD-V700 radiation survey meter or radiation detector. The fifth and final scene is preceded by a title card which reads, "Jury Rules Girl is 'Neglected'" and contains courtroom footage.

Community Gardening: a Novel Intervention for Bhutanese Refugees Living in the USA

Description: Since 2008, the United States (USA) has resettled thousands of Bhutanese refugees, providing brief financial support and pathways to citizenship. Despite the efforts of governing bodies and voluntary agencies which facilitate resettlement, many refugees struggle with adapting to the vastly different lifestyle, economy, language and social structures. In particular, effectively addressing psychological needs of this population is a challenge for service providers operating within an expensive health care system based on Western constructs of mental health. In response to this challenge, refugee resettlement agencies throughout the country use community gardens to promote psychological healing, self-sufficiency, community engagement, and a return of human dignity. Though success of these programs is being shared in the media, there has yet to be empirical data examining their impact. The current study tested whether Bhutanese refugee engagement in a community garden impacts symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD and somatic complaints. The study also investigated whether community gardening is associated with perceptions of social support and adjustment to life in the United States. Quantitative and qualitative data was collected from 50 adult Bhutanese refugees in Fort Worth, Texas. Gardening was significantly related to increased social support overall, a key factor in overall functionality within communal cultures; and specifically perceived tangible support was increased. A significant effect of gardening was also found for adjustment. Although a significant effect was not found for psychological and somatic symptoms, there is still evidence of effects on somatic complaints. Varying results from quantitative and qualitative data warrant further investigation into the nuanced work of clinical research and advocacy with refugee populations.
