Chapter 24: Wellbeing: refugee children’s psychosocial wellbeing and mental health
In this chapter we identify key strands of contemporary research on the wellbeing and mental health of refugee children, explore the tensions between different research and therapeutic perspectives, and finally suggest steps that may be taken to develop research and treatment agendas that bridge different therapeutic orientations while being simultaneously responsive to the needs of refugee children. The chapter begins with a brief overview of salient research highlighting differences between mental illness focused and psychosocial approaches to refugee children before moving on to a consideration of emerging paradigms in integrated treatment and research.
