English abstract:
Unaccompanied boys and girls fleeing Syria are at
particular risk of mental health issues. A recent
research project focuses on how technologies can be
used to deliver existing evidence-based strategies
around resilience and positive coping strategies for this
high-risk user group. In order to design for migrant
youth´s context, they should be included in the design
process. However, methodologies such as participatory
design have evolved in Western societies and also the
way to deal with mental health in the Middle East
differs from the Western societies. Thus, the question is
how the design methods can be modified that the
developed results will support the Arab migrant youth
and fit into their context.
