Assessing Stress, Coping and Quality of Life among Refugees and Asylum Seekers in Luxembourg

Abstract : In this dissertation we assessed psychological stress through post-traumatic embitterment disorder, quality of life among refugees and asylum seekers in Luxembourg. At N = 33, semi structured interviews indicated that asylum seeking administrative processes install fear of repatriation while social isolation, loneliness, lack of friends and of communication with families was linked to social, financial and acculturation difficulties. At N = 102, there were good indications that asylum seekers are victims of post-traumatic embitterment disorder. Additionally, 221 asylum seekers responded to ways of coping, social support, multicultural attitude, self-efficacy and quality of life questionnaires. With the help of structural equation modeling, social support, multicultural attitude and self-efficacy significantly predicted adaptive ways of coping with psychological stress. At the same time, there was the mediating and predictive effect of adaptive ways of coping and social support on quality of life respectively. Part of the models did not fit well to the data. Based on our findings, tracks for a multidisciplinary care model for refugees and asylum seekers were identified
