Refugee families negotiate stressors as they adjust to communities of resettlement, which can result in shifting family dynamics. The purpose of this community-engaged, explanatory, mixed-methods pilot study was to evaluate the feasibility and acceptability of a culturally oriented, community-based parenting curriculum. Through a partnership with a prominent refugee-serving organization, the curriculum was delivered to 50 Karen refugee mothers and fathers of adolescent youth resettled in the United States. Results demonstrated the potential for impact on key constructs of family adaptability and cohesion, as well as parent self-efficacy. Participants were highly engaged with the program and attrition was low.
