Abstract

The families of refugee youth in resettlement bear both strains and strengths that impact their children's adjustment and coping. Preventive interventions aimed at helping youth through helping their families should be developed. Given that many refugee youth struggle in school and may have inadequate involvement of their parents, one area in need of preventive intervention is parental involvement in refugee youths' education. The design, implementation, and evaluation of family-focused preventive interventions should be informed by research findings, family resilience theory, a community-based participatory research approach, and a focus on engagement.
