This book provides clinical strategies for working with immigrant and ethnically diverse patients and their offspring while drawing observations from the humanities to reveal truths about the psychological impact of immigration. Each aspect of the life of an immigrant is explored, shedding light on the complexities of work, friendship, sex, marriage, aging, religion, and politics.
