Abstract

Recently many ‘new’ migrants are settling in rural Australia by their own choice and by government initiatives. Many of these migrants face ‘settling in’ challenges in their new environment. Developing appropriate personal attributes can enhance coping with the settlement challenges.

This paper aims at highlighting strategies on how ‘new’ migrants can be mentored to develop and improve their personal attributes to cope with settlement challenges and develop independence.
