Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Supportive services for immigrants: A grant proposal
by Nguyen, Chinh, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 84; 1527019
Abstract (Summary)

The number of immigrants in the United States will increase by a projected 18.4 million per year. In Orange County, immigrants are the fastest growing segment with an estimated population of983,000. If immigration levels continue to increase and immigrant parents and children continue to live in poverty, then they are expected to demonstrate higher crime rates, parent-child relationship problems, child disciplinary or behavioral problems, lower academic performance, severe mental health issues, and more discrimination and prejudice.

The proposed program will provide education (for parents), counseling (for all participants), and mentorship (for adolescents, children, and transitional-aged youth). These culturally sensitive services will aim to: (a) alleviate the conflict within immigrant families, (b) mitigate the challenges and issues of acculturation and assimilation, and (c) empower positive life choices that enable them to maximize their potential. The actual submission of the proposal was not a requirement of the thesis.
