by Martinez, Katya, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2009, 64; 1466288
Abstract (Summary)

Immigration is a phenomenon that impacts individuals, families, and relationships. Many El Salvadorian refugees fled their country for freedom and opportunities in the United States during the civil war. There is limited information in regards to studies on this population. As a result, the writer's personal narrative as an El Salvadorian refugee migrating to the United States will be presented to serve as a resource in regards to the acculturation process, intergenerational conflict, and the ongoing struggles and limitations of being an immigrant. Literature was reviewed on the topic and facts were presented to emphasize the narrator's experiences.
