Coping Amidst Life Adversity in Post-Conflict Societies: Qualitative Revelations from Communities in Eastern Uganda

Coping Amidst Life Adversity in Post-Conflict Societies: Qualitative Revelations from Communities in Eastern Uganda

There is paucity of research about how previously internally displaced people in post-conflict Uganda cope amidst adversity and trauma. Understanding factors that underlie coping amidst such adversity is vital in identifying resilience and health promoting behaviors. We conducted 8 FGDs in 4 sub-counties in Uganda between March and May 2009. We tape-recorded and transcribed the data. We used thematic analysis to manage, analyze and interpret the data. We constantly identified and compared themes and sub-themes in the dataset as we read the transcripts.
