"Nervios" and "Modern Childhood": Migration and Shifting Contexts of Child Life in the Ecuadorian Andes.
Pribilsky, Jason
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v8 n2 p251-73 May 2001
Argues that beyond explanations predicated on psychological ideas of separation and attachment, "nervios," a depression-like disorder among children in the southern Ecuadorian Andes, reflects the limits of children's abilities to accept terms of family life increasingly defined through transnational migration and new consumption practices. Suggests that "nervios" aids children by giving voice to life changes they do not understand. (Author/KB)
