This paper describes a practical service model based on my field experience and outlines the process of Kosovar refugees' initial resettlement in Greater Victoria. Although an individual's age, social, educational, economic, and health conditions are some factors to influence refugee psycho-social adjustment, the continuum of resettlement is explained as dynamic, two-way, multifaceted, and long term. Resettlement does not end within one's lifetime, but it is rather an inter-generational evolution. This paper, however, only focuses on the first initial resettlement stage, which is critical to influence the whole continuum of inter-generational adjustment.
