Immigrants’ Acculturation Immigrants’ Psychiatric Problems

  • Dushan R. Kosovich

Abstract

Migration is the hallmark of the 20th century. In the name of wanderlust, of economic opportunity, of religious and political freedom of boredom even, more men and women have uprooted themselves and their families in the past fifty years than in the past thousand. And in great numbers they continue to resettle in alien territory, there to confront new tongues, new customs, new cultural values, new ethos, not to mention an alien population that is at best indifferent, or... and this is increasingly more likely ... hostile to new arrivals at the job market-place. Even in the United States of America, historically known as the planet’s melting pot... The Country with a Conscience ... reality for the newcomer has had more to do with opportunity than with hospitality.
