Settling In is a group program for newly arrived refugee and migrant students which aims to help students adjust to life in Australia.
During the ten week program students:
- Learn from each other
- Have their feelings and reactions normalised
- Learn coping strategies
- Form good relationships
Although it is most often used with school students, Settling In can be used in a range of situations.
Facilitators of the Settling In program should have significant experience in running groups, including experience in cross-cultural issues and in helping young people who have survived trauma.

- A helpful facilitator introduction on how to implement the program
