dc.description.abstractThis study was designed to glean an understanding of current trends in refugee mental health, including implications for practice, research and training. It is intended that these findings serve as a baseline guideline for the future development of guidelines for working with refugee populations and with persons with transnational identities in an era of globalization. It was hypothesized that mental health professionals, specifically Counseling Psychologists, would predict an increased need for and service to refugee populations in the coming decades and that findings would highlight the need for new innovations in theory, assessment and practice. The data, gleaned from Discovery-Oriented qualitative methodology, Appreciative Inquiry, and a Delphi Methodology, indeed predicts greater need for and interest refugee mental health and makes tentative suggestions for clinical work, teaching/training of new professionals, and research. Implications for future research are included.
