A five year longitudinal study of wellbeing in resettlement amongst humanitarian migrants from Burma

Heiner, Ashley R. (2014) A five year longitudinal study of wellbeing in resettlement amongst humanitarian migrants from Burma. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis research was conducted to identify factors that impact the psychological well-being of refugees from Burma who have been resettled in Australia. Qualitative analysis of interviews conducted within the first year of resettlement, and again at four years and five years post-resettlement demonstrated that refugee well-being is influenced by the context of resettlement and the continuity of existing relationships. Results have implications for immigration policy and contribute to knowledge of understanding and assisting with the process of resettlement.
