The education of immigrant youth in residential settings provides an alternative framework that offers solutions for some of the urgent problems of families in cultural transition. This paper focuses on a previously neglected area of research, namely, the trilateral relations between immigrant parents, their adolescent offspring, and the professional staff of such residential institutions in the Israeli context. The study probes the mutual perceptions of shifting intra-family liaisons and the views of the educational staff regarding the perception of its role as a mediator between immigrant parents and their children.
