The two videos, combined on one DVD or VHS videotape, were created by the Cultural Orientation Resource Center to assist refugees and refugee service providers in learning about the adjustment of refugee families and youth to their new lives in the United States. Featuring vignettes of the experiences of actual refugee families and youth, topics include family adjustment, discipline, school and home life, and learning English. While the focus of the video is on refugees, we have found that the video and guide work equally well in schools settings where educators seek to foster a greater understanding of cultural diversity with their students and in programs working with adult language learners.
