The purpose of this counseling project is to shed light on the issues, lack of support, and challenges that immigrant families experience in schools, particularly in California. The project proposes a support group using Adlerian Theory, Culture Race Theory and Bandura’s theory of self-efficacy. Immigrant parents in the group will have the opportunity to learn specific tools and skills that will enable them to support their children both within and outside of the school setting, while gaining a better sense of their experience within the acculturation process in a new environment.
