The Power of Connection: Social Networking and Adolescent Refugee Adjustment - P7

Social networking sites (SNS) provide tools for adolescent refugees to unite with others sharing the same cultural background and allow for the expression of an identity that encompasses the home culture and cultures within the United States. In order to facilitate a sense of belonging, refugee youth may turn to SNS to reconstitute their social networks, maintain cultural cohesiveness, and accumulate social capital resources. This program will increase knowledge regarding strategies for training future counselors on incorporating SNS when working with newcomer refugees.
