Ethnic minority position as risk indicator for autism-spectrum and psychotic disorders
Research output: Thesis › Doctoral Thesis › External prepared
It was shown that selective migration of people susceptible to developing a psychosis is not a sound explanation for our results. We state that social exclusion is an important risk factor, as other excluded groups such as children who are being bullied also develop a psychosis more frequently. This finding has far-reaching consequences for ethnic minorities in the Netherlands as well as the prognosis for refugees in Europe who are confronted with social exclusion on a large scale.
