Psychological Impact of Migration on Latinas: Implications for Psychotherapeutic Practice.
Espin, Oliva M.
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v11 n4 p489-503 Dec 1987
Examines the psychological implications of the migratory process on Latin American women in the United States, addressing issues of gender roles, acculturation, language, loss, and grief, that are frequently presented by Latinas in psychotherapy. Interprets these issues as reflective of stresses created by the migratory process, and suggests ways to respond to them through psychotherapy. (Author/KS)
