What Should Clinicians Know About Practice with Immigrant-Origin Clients
Immigrants are a growing population in the U.S. and face unique challenges. In addition to coping with acculturative changes while adapting to life in a new country, culture and language, they endure increasing prejudice and discrimination from the larger society. In this workshop, we will describe these challenges, including acculturative stress and traumatic stress, and intergenerational conflict. We will discuss how to address these challenges and mobilize sources of resilience in clinical conceptualization and intervention, and the importance of attending to sociocultural context within the therapeutic relationship.
