Bhutanese Refugee Adolescents' School Adjustment: The Role of Acculturation and Familial Social Capital
Moinolmolki, Neda
Intercultural Education, v30 n2 p141-158 2019
With the rise of conflict, persecution, and generalised violence worldwide there has been a drastic increase in the number of refugee youth displaced globally. Particularly noteworthy is the recent increase of Bhutanese refugee youth populations resettled in the United States. Despite this increase, surprisingly few studies distinctly address the promotive factors related to refugee youth's successful adjustment within their new school settings upon resettlement. This study aims to add to the scholarship through a resiliency lens. The potential promotive associations of familial social capital and acculturation identity on Bhutanese refugee youth's successful school adjustment were explored. Moreover, this study examined the unique additive predictive association of familial social capital on Bhutanese refugee youth's school adjustment over and above the effects of acculturation. The results indicate a significant additive positive relationship between familial social capital and school adjustment, beyond the effects of ethnic identity.
