Resettlement Case Study: Impacted East Coast Metropolitan Area.
Center for Applied Linguistics, Washington, DC. Refugee Service Center.
The resettlement experiences of a Vietnamese refugee family in an East Coast metropolitan area with a large refugee influx is studied. The report is in the form of a journal written by a family member, but is actually a composite of real experiences based on information gathered from interviews with individuals knowledgeable about refugee resettlement in the area. The family includes a mother, father, three school-age children, and the father's older brother and sister-in-law. The narrative begins on the family's first day in the United States and proceeds through the first year of resettlement. It presents the father's impressions, attitudes, and concerns, and describes general and specific experiences of acculturation and adjustment. Margin notes refer to discussion points made in notes at the end of the text. An evaluation form to be used by readers of the study is also included. (MSE)
