The experiences of immigrant families

Immigration is a complex experience coloured by many losses. Immigrants' needs vary depending on the culture and within the culture, in particular, with respect to the different experiences of men and women. The Canadian Chair in Family Psychosocial Health and the Centre for Studies and Research on Family Health Intervention (CERIF) are planning to study the experiences of immigrant families with respect to family transitions, such as birth, death and chronic illness.
