Exposure to war Immigrant Youth Life Stressors 15 violence consistently predicts mental health problems among refugees under the age of 18 [41]. The trauma of these events can alter biological and psychological developmental trajectories long after exposure [42, 43]. Migration and relocation trauma often result in adverse psychological outcomes, particularly PTSD and depression [44–47]. Child refugees in the USA have an increased incidence of traumatic loss, exposure to violence, as well as academic, behavioral, and psychological problems [44].

Thoughts, feelings, and behaviors generated by the session activities are examples of therapeutic content. Last, the therapeutic process reflects a child’s psychological presence in therapy. The manner in which the child completes the tasks within therapy, responds to the clinician’s questions, and solves problems can showcase this presence. Derived from the content of the session, the next essential step in CBT is to create a homework assignment with the patient.

Research on psychopathology and psychosocial adaptation in refugee youth populations has historically adopted a trauma focus, exploring the relationship between pre-displacement trauma and mental health outcomes. This narrow research focus overlooks important stressors at various stages in the process of displacement. Research findings may then over-attribute variance in psychological outcomes to pre-displacement trauma and negate the role of stressors during and after resettlement [18]. Given the pronounced stressors facing immigrant and refugee youth, failing to consider how stressors relate to psychosocial outcomes or how they may change the relationship between pre-displacement trauma and psychosocial outcomes precludes an understanding of adaptation for this population.
