Interventional Guideline on Self-Care/Self-Development for Asylum-Seeking Adolescents: A Step Forward to a Sustainable Emotional and Behavioural Health
You are here:
The combination of forced migration and adolescence, as a strong risk factor, has a negative effect on the health of refugee adolescents. Although the search for effective ways to improve their mental health has recently gained momentum, there are still a lot of shortcomings, specifically in educational health. With the long-term goal of improving asylum-seeking adolescents’ well-being using their potential abilities, the main objective of SC-SD4ASA is to develop a Self-care/Self-development intervention guideline, effective on asylum-seeking adolescents’ psychological and behavioral health. In this respect, special attention will be given to their specific situation, their background, the host community’s culture and resource accessibility. This project will focus on 3 main stages: needs and knowledge assessment, developing the guideline, and assessing its fidelity. The interdisciplinary nature of the project is strong, involving a combination of well-developed psychology and public/educational health promotion. The guideline will be developed aiming to help individuals involved in planning, managing and promoting health among adolescents and can be used as a solid foundation for future studies in various disciplines.
