Section A presents a literature review which aims to consolidate the theoretical and empirical psychological research regarding refugees’ post-migration, to clarify and further understand their psychological experiences and needs. The literature search yielded papers which are divided into four sections: refugees and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD); refugees, complicated grief and cultural bereavement; refugees, resettlement and acculturation; and refugees and Quality of Life (QoL). The review highlights key findings and areas requiring further exploration.
