Abstract

This project will conduct a longitudinal investigation of the psychosocial adaptation of refugees with insecure and secure residency over a period of three years. This project will identify longitudinal trajectories of adaptation in refugees with insecure and secure residency, investigate flashpoints where refugees’ psychological adaptation deteriorates or improves, and investigate psychological mechanisms underpinning adaptation pathways. Findings could significantly advance knowledge about the adaptation of refugees and help refugees to make a positive social and economic contribution to Australia.
