have largely focused on psychopathology utilising quantitative
methodologies. There is a need to move beyond the focus on
psychopathology to a more holistic understanding of
the resettlement experience. The current study will take into
account the present knowledge of pre and post-migration factors which
impact on mental health and well-being. Further, it will utilise
appropriate models for understanding the refugee experience and draw on
models from outside of the refugee literature which inform us about
factors contributing to psychosocial well-being. This exploratory
study will investigate, with the use of appropriate measures such as
the World Health Organisation's Quality of Life Instrument (Brief
Version) and a semi-structured clinical interview, meaning in
life, social connectedness and quality of life in young
people from a Sudanese refugee background.
