Abstract:
Purpose: This paper describes an evolving program of family interventions and services research concerning refugee families from Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosova in Chicago. Methods: This program of research is being conducted by a group of university scholars and community associates, including Americans, Bosnians, and Kosovars, who are engaged in a multidisciplinary approach to inquiry while helping refugees and the organizations that help refugees. A central focus of the work has involved a set of multi-family support and education interventions named CAFES (Coffee and Family Education and Support) that are based upon a family strengths and family ecological perspective. Findings: Analyses support the effectiveness of the intervention and distinguishes characteristics of families and their level of engagement with the intervention. Implications: Family interventions of this type are an underutilized but necessary means for addressing the suffering of refugee communities. A services research framework concerning interventions with refugee families is an appropriate and necessary means for achieving new family-focused interventions and promoting changes in policies of refugee services. Efforts to apply the Family strengths and Family ecological framework and components of this program of research to mental health services and families in Kosovo are reported.
