Strengthening the Migrant Family
Preventing the development of mental disorders and working for the strengthening of the individual and the family are amongst preventive studies. In this context, Korkut conducted a study in Switzerland between 1993-1997. She obtained permission from AÇEV for his doctorate study at the University of Zurich at the time. The results of this project were presented at AÇEV, and in the following years AÇEV successfully carried out similar applications in Switzerland (in the same region of Switzerland). The results of this doctoral study were reported in a book by Pro Juventute (1997). During the time it was published, it shed light on many works.
