A Family-Centered Approach to Working with Refugee Children and Adolescents

Families provide children with crucial surroundings of social support, acknowledgment, and hope, creating a protective shield. When a family is confronted with adversities and long-lasting stress and faces adjustment difficulties, familial support may become inadequate, and the family environment is a source of additional stress for the child. It is therefore important to find ways to preserve and strengthen family support in times of difficulties.
