As the number of defectors increases, resettlement of the defectors in South Korea comes to the fore. There are many social and personal problems that they have to overcome, but the most difficult is keeping sound mind and family-ties. The defectors had suffered from financial, political, and social pressures before they came to South Korea. While they were escaping from North Korea, they experienced sever psychological trepidation. In addition, when they tried to resettle in South Korea, they confronted many problems that threaten their mental and physical health: identity crisis, unemployment, the education of their children, guiltiness about the family in North Korea.
In order to encourage them to cope with their frustration, the government has to offer proper policies. In addition, many counselling programs have to be provided for the them.
This paper surveyed how defectors' present problems could be dealt with the existing Christian counselling methods. These methods, however, lack some case studies. Thus, this paper could be used as a stepping stone to defectors' current problems.
