Selected Bibliography on Indochinese Refugees: Children and Adolescents. Amerasian Project, Bibliography #1.
Felsman, J. Kirk; And Others
This is a selected bibliography on child and adolescent refugees of Indochinese from the American project at Dartmouth Medical School. Very little literature exists on child or adolescent refugees of any nationality and virtually no prospective, longitudinal studies are available. No firm conclusions about the development and adaptation of these children can be made because the few studies that are available are characterized by major methodological flaws and focus on short-term adjustment. This literature search is drawn from Psychological Abstracts, Sociological Abstracts, Public Affairs Information Service, Magazine Index, National Newspaper Index, ERIC, and Medline. It covers the years 1970-1985 with increased citations after the 1975 influx of refugees. Personal contacts with experts in Southeast Asia were used in developing this bibliography. It is arranged by primary and secondary sources; within each group the citations are listed in alphabetical order by the author's name. The citations are relatively brief; documents found in ERIC contain only the author, title, and ED number. This bibliography is targeted for clinicians, resettlement professionals, and researchers involved with Indochinese refugee children's adaptation to life in the United States. (ABL)
