Are You Struggling With Immigration and Acculturation?
People who travel from other countries and attempt to make their home in the United States may face a host of issues, such as isolation, anxiety, confusion, or sadness. They had to leave their home for whatever reason, and they left some things behind.
Available Treatment Options
Counselors and therapists approach people who are immigrants or who are acculturating to a new community with respect and dignity, ensuring that they take great care to understand the tenets of the culture from which the client came. Better yet, counseling interventions by therapists who share a cultural background with the person seeking therapy can increase trust and the effectiveness of therapy. Counseling interventions include building trust, expressing empathy, and processing emotions related to the person’s specific situation.
