Resilience and recovery after war: Refugee children and families in the United States

American Psychological Association

When working with refugee children and their families, the most effective practitioners provide comprehensive services, are culturally competent, and integrate evidence-based practice with practice-based evidence. Truly rich multicultural practice involves a process of community engagement that allows for dialogue, questioning, and adaptation of practice to fit a group's beliefs and values while still providing culturally informed, effective care.
