Abstract

The sequelae of migration and the effects of local migration policies on
children’s physical and mental health are critical to examine, particularly
given historically high numbers of migrants and displaced people. The
vulnerability of the study sample and need to work across cultures and
contexts makes research on this group challenging. We outline lessons
learned through conducting a pilot study of resilience resources and mental
health among migrant youth in six countries. We describe the benefits and
challenges, and then provide recommendations and practical advice for
social work researchers attempting cross-cultural team research on
migrants.
