Description

This workshop discusses the reasons that Central American families and children seek asylum in the United States. Beginning with the conditions that trigger emigration, the presentation describes the stages of migration and with examples from the presenter’s research and clinical experiences. For more specificity, the presenter draws on human attachment theory to explain the untoward effects on children’s reactions to detention and separation from parents. The workshop concludes with consideration of some possible interventions intended to reduce the harm and long-term effects of detention and separation.
