Immigrant, Migrant, and Refugee communities face unique challenges when moving to a new country and culture. Drs. Vivian and Courtland Lee spent two years in Malta exploring and studying these cultures to gain an understanding of how to better counsel these groups, including asylum seekers. Understanding the motivation behind the decision to leave one’s home, and the relationship between acculturative stress and quality of life are key to understanding the counseling needs of the immigrant and refugee population.
