Description of Resource

This issue of the Journal of Family Psychology addresses family processes and children’s psychological adjustment in the presence of trenchant sociocultural change, cultural conflict, family dislocation, and the need for readjustment to new social environments. This special issue of 15 articles focuses on the psychosocial adaptation of immigrant families, parenting practices and their implications for child outcomes, and the importance of parent–adolescent relationships for adolescent mental health.  BRYCS’ audiences will be particularly interested in the article The Experiences of Sudanese Unaccompanied Minors in Foster Care.
