You need to understand what the refugee experience feels like in order to understand how you can help . . . Refugees are resilient, brave people who come to America with the hope of creating a better life. In New Americans, New Promise, author Yorn Yan describes the refugee experience in the United States and how to best help refugees through the acculturation and transition process of becoming a New American. You’ll learn the remarkable contributions refugees are making, from first arrival to multicultural leadership; what to expect during the five stages of development refugees progress through as they adapt; the characteristics, challenges, and types of support needed at each stage of development; how to build relationships and trust within refugee communities; and insider’s knowledge of the refugee experience from an author who has moved from refugee to multicultural leader. Nonprofits, foundations, government agencies, religious groups, and businesses will find that the stories, tips, tools, and advice in this book help them better understand the refugee experience, so they can create programs and services that work. Refugees and New Americans will find the knowledge and resources to gain a sense of normalcy as they face challenges. They will learn new ways to help themselves succeed and become leaders in America.
