Working With Indochinese Refugees: A Handbook for Mental Health Workers and Human Service Providers.
Koschmann, Nancy Lee; Tobin, Joseph Jay
This is a handbook for mental health workers and human service providers who deal with Indochinese refugees. Part I of the booklet provides an overview of the Indochinese refugee situation, discussing the refugees' experience, how they came to the United States, how they have adjusted, and factors that service providers must consider in helping them. Part II presents background information on the history and culture of Cambodians, Laotians, Loa Hmong, Vietnamese, and ethnic Chinese refugees from Indochina. Two articles, "Vietnamese-American Intercultural Communication," by Nguyen Dang Liem, and "Health and Disease: The Indochinese Perspective," by Tran Minh Tung, are also included in this section. Finally, a list of resettlement agencies is provided. (Author/APM)
