About this book

This book offers a comprehensive overview of resilience across immigrant and refugee populations. It examines immigrant and refugee strengths and challenges and explores what these experiences can impart about the psychology of human resilience.

Finally, the book provides policy recommendations on how to promote the well-being of immigrant and refugee families.

  • Positive adjustment among internal migrants.
  • Experiences of Syrian and Iraqian asylum seekers.
