Meaning in Life, Social Connectedness and Quality of Life in Young People from a Sudanese Refugee Background (abstract only), By Sussanah Tipping

**The complete thesis will be published on SORA on completion***

To date, studies exploring the post-resettlement mental health of refugees 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.
