Abstract: This project aims to find out how motherhood develops in contexts of adversity, as well as to promote the exercise of resilient motherhood among African migrant women settled in Seville. To this end, a participatory needs assessment will be carried out with 30 African mothers living in two shelters managed by the Red Cross. Based on the information gathered, it is hoped that the main strengths and resources they have, as well as their main challenges to exercising satisfactory maternity in the receiving context, will be known. This will allow us to generate material for social and scientific dissemination that makes this reality visible, as well as to lay the foundations for the design of a psychosocial intervention project that enhances the exercise of resilient motherhood (i.e., hopeful motherhood, with a sense of self-efficacy and that deploys effective coping strategies to respond to the needs of their children).
