Hugging, Drinking Tea, and Listening: Mental Health Needs of Turkish Immigrants
Sohtorik, Yasemin; McWilliams, Nancy
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v39 n2 p66-77 Apr 2011
Twelve Turkish immigrants were interviewed in a hypothesis-generating, qualitative investigation of their immigration experiences and mental health needs. Findings suggest high levels of psychological distress associated with homesickness, lack of English proficiency, problematic immigration status, difficulty adjusting to a new culture, and financial problems. Possible implications for clinicians are discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
