Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Narrative thesis project: Bicultural challenges of a Peruvian American immigrant
by Martinez, William, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 62; 1486505
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this narrative is to share with the reader the narrator's unique bicultural upbringing in the United States. The narrator will provide the reader with a review of challenges associated with his immigration to the United States, which adversely affected the development of his identity during his childhood and adolescences.

The narrator will further demonstrate to the reader his ability to remain resilient and optimistic, when feeling isolated from both his native and host culture. The narrator hopes to bring awareness to immigrant families and social workers, of the possible mental health implications directly related to the process of acculturation.
