Summary of  Use of participatory action research to support Syrian refugee mothers in the resettlement period in Canada: A longitudinal study 

This study examines the perspectives of Syrian refugee mothers living in BC with respect to the social support they received in early, middle, and later phases of resettlement. Results indicate that many participants experienced social exclusion, heightened gendered vulnerabilities, and opportunities for growth in all phases of migration (before, during, and after). In the post migration phase, refugees faced acculturation stress, social exclusion, a decrease in community relationships, and an unpredictable access to healthcare.
