How to assess stress and migratory mourning. Scales of risk factors in mental health - Joseba Achotegui

Abstract

The scale measures the vulnerability and stressors that are two fundamental factors in the development of the seven griefs of migration: family, language, culture, land, social status, group of belonging and physical risks. The vulnerability is the limitations, the handicaps that the immigrant has that make it difficult for him to succeed in the migratory project and the stressors are the barriers, the obstacles he encounters in order to elaborate migratory grief. The book raises the conceptual basis of the test, explains how it is used and through a series of indicators enables the measurement of the intensity of vulnerability and stressors that affect the immigrant.
