Refugee resettlement is often observed by focusing on external indicators of integration such as employment and English proficiency. What is often ignored is the muti-faceted process refugees experience in regard to the emotions that occur during resettlement including financial con-cerns, employment conditions, inadequate counseling services and lack of English language sup-port that can lead to increased stress and anxiety. This research utilized qualitative research methods of interviews and participant observation to examine the process of resettlement for northeast and sub-Saharan African refugees living in Michigan.
