Frye, Barbara A. 1995. "Use of Cultural Themes in Promoting Health among Southeast Asian Refugees." American Journal of Health Promotion 9 (4):269-80. 




The author reviewed literature in order to locate papers that identified cultural themes of relevance to Southeast Asian refugee groups in the United States.  The aim was to use these themes as part of a strategy to better promote health within this population.  The author describes her search strategy, which led her to identify two predominant themes: kinship solidarity and the search for equilibrium or balance.  She examines these themes, the refugee experience, and strategies for using these themes for health promotion purposes.
