Reseach Interests

Dr. Cange’s research focuses on the long-term impacts of psychotrauma on vulnerable populations.  He is currently working on several articles and a book project that analyze the long-term health and policy consequences of the war on the Kuwaiti population.  In particular, he exposes the economic, historical and social roots of the war, and how these factors continue to influence Kuwaiti and U.S. public policy today.  In a second project, he is working on understanding and comparing trauma-informed care among refugee populations in Germany, France, Sweden and the UK.
