Abstract

To assist in designing socially and culturally specific preventive interventions for refugee youths and families, this study identified the processes by which refugee families adapt and apply family beliefs concerning youths. A grounded-theory model constructed with ATLAS/ti for Windows and named the family beliefs framework describes (a) family beliefs concerning refugee youths, (b) contextual factors interacting with these family beliefs, (c) adaptation of family beliefs concerning refugee youths, and (d) the interplay of adapting family beliefs and behaviors concerning refugee youths. Preventive interventions for refugee youths and families would be more socially and culturally specific if they addressed the specific processes of adapting family beliefs experienced by refugee youths and their families amid transitions and traumas.
