Psychological wellbeing of refugees resettling in Australia : a literature review prepared for the Australian Psychological Society
Murray, Kate, Davidson, Graham, & Schweitzer, Robert (2008) Psychological wellbeing of refugees resettling in Australia : a literature review prepared for the Australian Psychological Society. Australian Psychological Society.
This literature review was developed as background for the formulation of an Australian Psychological Society position on the mental health and wellbeing of refugees resettling in Australia. The major aim is to provide a broad overview of the concerns related to refugee mental health and wellbeing within the Australian context. To begin, a brief overview of the definition of a refugee and the scope of refugee movement is provided. Next, the review examines the pre-displacement, post-displacement, systemic and socio-political factors that influence the process of adaptation in refugee resettlement. It then reviews documented approaches to psychological assessment and therapeutic interventions with refugees; and finally it summarises suggestions for assessment and intervention in these practice contexts.
