Migrant Adolescents

The information presented in this chapter focuses on the issues pertinent to migrant adolescents. It has been gleaned from ten years of clinical experience as well as a comprehensive review of the literature that has focused on migrant life in the United States, specifically in Michigan. The objective of this chapter is to examine the assets of migrant life for Latino adolescents, and as well, to introduce dimensions that contribute to less than healthy development.
