Section 2, Specific Mental Health Issues and Refugees, lists resources in the following categories: typical or common mental health problems, disorders, or issues for refugees; assessment and diagnosis; needs assessment; treatment; prevention, promotion, and outreach; mental health service delivery; and training issues and professional development. Section 3, Concerns of Selected Subgroups of Refugees, provides references on the specific issues and needs of children and adolescents, women, and the elderly, along with references describing kinship issues facing refugee families in their country of resettlement. It also contains a category of references on refugees who have been victimized by torture, terror, concentration camps, and/or rape. Section 4, Other Bibliographies on Refugees and Related Topics, includes both published and unpublished bibliographies. Section 5, Language, consists of references in the following areas: issues in education and bilingual education; interpretation; and language and language concerns.
