Educated Immigrant Women Workers Doing Well with Change: Helping and Hindering Factors
Koert, Emily; Borgen, William A.; Amundson, Norman E.
Career Development Quarterly, v59 n3 p194-207 Mar 2011
The authors investigated the strategies that helped or hindered 10 immigrant women workers to do well with change that affected their work. A total of 182 incidents were extracted and grouped into 9 categories: personal beliefs/traits/values, taking action, skills/education, personal challenges, self-care, relationships/support, government/community resources, work environment, and contextual challenges. Results support and extend contentions that both internal/personal and external factors are key successful adaptation to change for immigrant women. Implications for research and practice are discussed. Counseling recommendations are offered for individuals who are struggling with change. (Contains 1 table.)
