Clinical Work with Immigrants and First Gen Americans: Clinical Implications
Maria Laguna, LCSW
Given that the United States attracts the largest number of immigrants in the world, the experience of working with immigrant and first-generation Americans is not foreign to clinicians. Due to the current socio-political climate, issues around acculturation, identity conflicts and intergenerational trauma are becoming more and more prevalent in the consulting room. By drawing on several concepts of Object Relations theory, this workshop aims at helping clinicians identify some of the salient issues, unconscious processes and internal conflicts that tend to occur among immigrant and first-generation Americans. Clinicians will be introduced to theoretical and technical tools to strengthen their assessment and engagement skills when working with this population.
