Psychological wellbeing and resources for young refugees during armed conflict: spirals of loss and gain


The study examines resource loss and gain spirals in the context of severe and prolonged adversity and its impact on psychological wellbeing of young people (i.e. Congolese or South Sudanese refugees). The aim is to enhance insight in how the impact of resource loss can be limited, and resource gain can be incited or sustained in order to foster psychological wellbeing.
