This study investigated family factors and processes involved in Bosnian refugees engaging in multiple-family support and education groups in Chicago. Families that engaged experienced more transitions, more traumas, and more difficulties in adjustment. Engagement strategies for multiple-family groups should correspond with the underlying family processes by which refugee families manage transitions, traumas, and adjustment difficulties.
