Dr. Denise Saint Arnault (Associate Professor, College of Nursing) is a masters-prepared Psychiatric Nurse specialist, with a PhD in Medical Anthropology. She has nearly 20 years of clinical practice working with women's depression, particularly women whose depression is related to childhood trauma and/or IPV (Saint Arnault & Oksoo, 2008; Saint Arnault, Sakamoto, & Moriwaki, 2005, 2006). Her research focuses on the experiences of distress and help-seeking for immigrant and minority women, and she has worked with women in Native American, African American and Asian communities (Saint Arnault, 2005, in press). Her current NIMH-funded research examines the interrelationships among internalized cultural beliefs and values, distress, social networks and help-seeking for women in a Japanese community in the Midwest. She has developed innovative mixed survey, ethnographic and psychiatric methods in this study, and within the ethnographic interview has used a lifeline to help women organize their discussion of distress and help-seeking.
