Understanding the Role of Acculturative Stress on Refugee Youth Mental Health: A Systematic Review and Ecological Approach to Assessment and Intervention
d'Abreu, Ana; Castro-Olivo, Sara; Ura, Sarah K.
School Psychology International, v40 n2 p107-127 Apr 2019
In this article, we conduct a systematic review of the extant literature on the risk and protective factors that impact the healthy resettlement of refugee children around the world. We identify acculturative stress as a main risk factor to consider for assessment and intervention given that is often overlooked in the literature for refugee children, but has been found to strongly impact their socio-emotional development. In addition, we discuss ecologically framed/culturally responsive interventions and assessment practices that could aid in the successful resettlement of refugee children. We also discuss the limitations of the extant research on refugee children and make recommendations for future research directions.
