Crossing Paths: Immigrant Children Traveling  Across Borders

As I wrap my head around what I am witnessing I realized that the work being done with the children crossing the borders is so out of context of these children lives and where these children are coming from politically. As they have crossed over borders the institutions treating and serving them are using US based, mainstream models of psychotherapy, mental health, social work, psychology …

Do these models do more harm than good? The answer has always been yes, whether in conversation of immigrants or migrants and native people to this own land and people of color in general in the US.
