Stress and Coping Strategies in the Lives of Recent Immigrants: A Grounded Theory Model
Yakushko, Oksana
International Journal for the Advancement of Counselling, v32 n4 p256-273 Dec 2010
A grounded theory was utilized to develop a model of stress and coping experienced by recent immigrants to the United States. Maximum variation sampling was used to gather data from 20 leaders within immigrant and refugee communities in a Midwest U.S. city. A theoretical model was developed by identifying causal conditions, contexts, intervening conditions, and consequences related to experiences of stress and coping. Specific propositions in regard to the process of stress, coping, and adaptation among recent immigrants were made. Implications for clinical services and research with this population are considered.
