I am a Master’s student working on the SPRINT study, which is examining the experiences of Syrian children’s transition to Canada as refugees. My goal working with this research is to investigate how these children’s experience as refugees has influenced their prosocial behaviour, such as helping others. More specifically, I want to see how their motivation for why they perform prosocial behaviours differs from that of non-refugee children. The goal of my research is to use what we learn in this study to help implement changes that will ameliorate the transitions of future refugee families coming to Canada.
