It would be an onerous task to attempt to reach definite conclusions from the diversity of research studies reported here. The theoretical frameworks, research questions, target samples, and methodologies vary considerably from one study to another. Rather, we will make some observations on the status of the research in this area and raise some of its implications for policy and practice including challenges for its own future directions.
