Lindgren hopes that if the mental-health workers find that the technique helps their patients, she can return to Iraq within the year to expand the training.

The team included Johns Hopkins researchers Paul Bolton and Judith K.
Bass, as well as Debra Kaysen, Lindgren’s mentor when she did postdoctoral studies at the University of Washington.
Secondary psychopaths (n = 39) were characterized by personality traits of negative emotionality and low behavioral constraint, an early onset of antisocial and criminal behavior, greater substance use and abuse, more violent behavior and institutional misconduct, and more mental health problems, including symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder and suicide attempts.
“I’ve never had a group of students who were so focused and literally writing down every word,” she said.
Lindgren describes herself as “very much the junior partner” on the pilot project organized by Johns Hopkins University.
Lindgren, an assistant professor of psychology at UR for the past year, recently spent eight intensive days training mental-health workers in the Kurdish region of Iraq.
Their goal is to help victims of the violence waged against the people of Kurdistan during the 1980s and 1990s.
