Title: Immigrant Processing and Adjustment: Clinical Implications

Abstract: In this workshop, participants will learn about the many categories of legal and illegal immigration to the U.S. which should be considered for effective assessment of healthy adjustment in this country. Further, from a clinical perspective, this workshop will present a range of unique difficulties often encountered as new immigrant groups attempt to adjust in America, while retaining indigenous spiritual, cultural and health belief systems.

Clinical Professor, Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego. Independent Practice.

Title: Latino Immigrants in Therapy: Transnational Journeys

Abstract: Many Latino immigrants are "transnationals" who are able to maintain intense connections with their countries and families. Attention will be paid to separations and reunions that strike at the core of family attachments. An innovative binational/bicultural model that integrates the relational, the community and the cultural-sociopolitical levels will be presented and illustrated with clinical examples.
