Family and community in the immigration process

Ben Gurion University of Negev

Course Designer & Lecturer: Lina Lifshits-Rozin, MSW

Course Description:

The course addresses psychological and social processes that families undergo in the immigration process, their effect on each individual in the family, on the relationships between family members, on parenthood and on the relationships between families and the society. Students explore their own concepts about immigrants through cultural competence perception, power relationships between social workers and immigrant families and the processes of cultural counter-transference. For a direct encounter with the experience of migration, students collect record and analyze interviews with immigrants. The course aims to develop knowledge, skills, theoretical approach, awareness and innovative intervention tools for a reflexive and sensitive social work practice with immigrants and their families.
