Pre/Post Migration Stressors of Arab Refugee Families

Research
This study identifies the pre and post migration stressors faced by Arab refugees in Canada. It looks at the pre-migration stressors, which influence their self-concept and interpersonal relationships with immediate and extended family members. These can also affect their sense of belonging to their ethnic, national, religious or cultural groups as well as their relationships with individuals in Canada. In addition, it provides insight on post-migration challenges that influence traditional family structure and gender-roles and may create a shift within family dynamics that inhibits their ability to adapt to the new culture.
