Resumé

Working with families across cultures is a challenge faced by an increasing number of professionals. In the age of globalisation, manifest in movement of people and goods across national boundaries, identities, relationships and actions in the local context exist in relationship with the global level context. In line with the broad theme of this book, I aim to explain a model for working with families across cultural boundaries, based on a critical constructive eclectic theoretical framework combining local practices with practice based knowledge.
The eclectic theoretical framework for the model is based on social contextual theories such as social constructionism and cultural psychology combined with life course and transnational perspectives. Three major principles are developed in the paradigm: multiple identities, family inclusion and broad social context inclusion. A case is presented and discussed to illustrate these principles. The interplay between theory, practical and empirical research in the article also underpins the ethical aspects of the intervention, especially in dealing with vulnerable families with refugee background in Nordic countries.
