More people than ever before live in a country other than the one in which they were born. But so many are left feeling split between here and there; wounded by the series of losses (cultural norms, language, supports and identity) resulting from the migration experience. In this session, view one of today’s most prominent Latina psychologists and explore how therapists can help clients rediscover themselves, feel more empowered and navigate the losses associated with migration.
