Assisting cultural transition using the Families In Cultural Transition (FICT) program.

Mohamed Dukuly

In this presentation Mohamed explores how a STARTTS designed group-based program called Families in Cultural Transition (FICT) assists refugee individuals, families and communities deal with the impact of differential acculturation. He presents a case study of a FICT group from ‘Community X’ who were experiencing challenges around parenting, relationships with their adolescent children, and general family functioning as a result of an acculturation gap, that demonstrates how the FICT psychosocial education process helped deal with those challenges. The FICT process works by assisting refugee families understand the conceptual frameworks underpinning Australian society, identify the challenges posed by cultural transition, and develop skills and coping mechanisms to deal with those challenges.

Recorded at the NSW Service for the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture and Trauma Survivors (STARTTS)
