Engaging Chinese Immigrant Parents in Youth Suicide Prevention: Shifting Parenting Paradigm in a Culturally Relevant Context
Chung, Irene Wai Ming; Chu, Hsiao-Ching; Bloom, Scott
School Social Work Journal, v37 n1 p17-35 Sep 2012
This article discusses a school and community collaborative initiative that targeted students of Chinese descent as a suicide at-risk population. Its main focus was to reach out to immigrant parents to help them strengthen communication and relationships with their adolescent children and to facilitate their access to mental health services in the community. Discussion focuses on implementation of the educational workshop curriculum, relevant to Chinese immigrant values and parenting styles as well as engagement strategies for forming empathic alliance with immigrant parents. Implications for school social workers as cross-cultural liaisons also are discussed.
