Neurobiological Determinants as Barriers to Housing Stability

Abstract


This dialogic-centered—discussion explores the neurological and biological determinants often identified as psychiatric disorders and/or medical conditions measured through non-invasive brain imaging. Improved measures within housing stability; specifically Housing First models, sets the stage for a range of additional screenings to be incorporated as a means to better diagnose and treat comorbid conditions of persons struggling with housing stability. Contemporary conceptualizations of chronic homelessness need to be challenged as advanced neurobiological imaging reveals astounding correlations between neurological health and housing stability.
