Description of Resource

This article first describes today's immigrants, then the stressors and challenges they face, and ends by offering suggestions for prevention and intervention strategies to promote the mental health and positive adjustment of immigrant children.  One of the main suggestions provided is to use parents as a resource to lessen the family acculturation gap, which often contributes to family conflict and misunderstanding.
