Abstract

Immigrant and refugee families face many challenges pre-migration, migration, and post-migration. Parents face additional stressors as they work to support their family and raise their children, while adjusting to a new home in a foreign country. The Supporting Transition Resilience of Newcomer Groups (STRONG) program is a school-based intervention developed by Dr. Sharon Hoover (2018) for immigrant and refugee children. The current study employs an integrative data analysis using both inductive and deductive reasoning to examine themes related to parent engagement, parent preferences, and suggestions for the future implementation of STRONG.
