Abstract
Evidence suggests that hope is important during adversity and contains a relational dimension (Farran, Herth, & Popovich 1995), yet there is currently no research studying hope within refugee parent-child relationships. This case study explored hope within two Ismaili Afghani refugee parent-child dyads. In the first phase of the study, parents and children were given cameras and invited to capture images they associated with hope. Secondly, photo-assisted interviews with each parent and child were conducted to better understand how hope is experienced, challenged, and enhanced within the caregiving relationship. Interview transcripts were analyzed thematically across three levels, and the following eight themes emerged: The Importance of Hope, Hope in the Canadian Context, Hope and the Caregiving Relationship, Faith and Hope, Education and Hope, The Refugee Experience, Children as a Source of Hope, and The Family Unit as a Source of Hope. Implications for counselling and future research are discussed.
